If the way this traffic situation works on the road is any indication of how it works in our minds and in our hearts then we have a bit to learn. Of all the things we do when we drive our car (or ride our bike) yielding is probably the hardest, not only to do, but to enjoy.
Whether we're merging onto a highway yielding is necessary. When you think about the mindset needed in order to yield successfully, difficulty arises because what we are really doing is allowing someone already in the rush of traffic to dictate our ability to enter that pattern. Yelding is a totally safe and acceptable thing to do, and when it's done the right way, everybody benefits. If we yield too slowly, or try to force our way into the pattern, yielding becomes a dangerous endeavor.
The thing about yielding is that it is a necessary process to go through in order to experience the power of the highway. As nerve-racking and potentially frustrating as the process can be, it almost always allows for something more well-appreciated ahead.
To be clear, however, you don't get to where you're going by yielding all the time, either. But only right before you need to experience the power on the highway in front of you.
You might be saying; "Ok, ok. Enough about traffic, why illustrate this?"
In life it's important to understand the process of giving The One who already has access to the power of the highway a chance to dictate your entry into that power. Slowing down, putting others first, and not taking too long or trying to force our way through this process will obtain for us the power that is in store for us.
Perhaps there are things you desire in life, or things you're striving for. Ask yourself if you have done the yielding necessary to obtain it. What do you need to give up? What do you need to focus on? What should change in you? This is a safe process when done properly. Everybody can benefit. And you can gain access to the better Way.
