I am still exploring how we use metaphor in our lives, to gain understanding of our world and to communicate with one another. I blogged about metaphors such as “I felt like I was thrown under the bus,”: and how my knee pain was “telling” me to “slow down.” Well yesterday, I was talking to a dear friend about a decision I want to make about “next steps” (that’s a metaphor!) in my life. She said, “Let the path reveal itself.” Wow! For some unconscious reason, that little phrase really helped me to understand just what I should do. Be patient. Let things unfold. Once again, the metaphor said so much more that “trying to figure things out,” which is want I do a lot. The metaphor just made things fall into place. OK, yes, falling into place is also a metaphor. They are everywhere!
