Van Dyke says of life, "We are on a Journey. Our
life Is a movement, a tendency, a steady, ceaseless prog ress towards an unseen goal. We are gaining something or losing something every day. Even when our position and our character seem to remain precisely the same, they are changing." It Is an Interesting definition to give of life, do you "9t think? A good many of us regard life as a grind, a struggle, a condition of suffering or wretchedness thrust upon u» without our volition and from which we cannot escape. We growl at It or rail at it or shirk, because, we say. It is none of our doing that we are here. And we go out of It having gained little from it but unhapplness. But suppose we consider this other view of it for a while. Let us see whither this will lead and what results it will bring. For we know that m tree Is Judged by Its fruits. For one thing, to view life as a Journey, a Journey that le taking us orwrd Into the new and undiscovered, puts a new face upon life, does t not, a face of Joy? Each day holds forth glad hands to lead us to new experiences, new acquaintances, new work, new results in old fields of endeavor. Today Is never the same as yesterday. There Is freshness for us every hour if we will see it. There is always change. And if our mind be not filled with some unchanging thought, purely of our own creating, of bitterness or resentment or indifference, we will see and share this change and growth all about us. Taking the view then that life Is a Journey, how can we make sure that we are going in the right direction, that we are not, even perhaps through sheer Ignorance, heading the wrong way, that we may be taking itepa Backward or downward, which if progression la the ultimate end, we must retrace. The labels "Right" and "Wrong" help some; but with others these labels carry no authority, no ability to guide. And sometimes, these labels are merely a matter of personal opinion or prejudice. But can we not apply a test of our own? Is not life constructive? If it were destructive, It could not be life. Therefore, those things which are constructive, those things which have no element In them whatever of destructiveness must be life, must mean progression. So that anything that is destructive in any way—to the body, to the character, to the work we are doing, anything that will make us to retrogress Instead of progress, cannot be life. Doesn't this give us a sure standard to help us forward, and one that we can make our own? But to some life is dark and hard and dreary for other reasons. They iay they are chained to one place or condition, that there is no Journey for them. Even to these, every day is a new day with new interests, new por tions even of old tasks. But there is more than this that is new. For there ] is new hope. And hope Is great fuel for the Journey of life. Feed the body with hope and no matter how chained it may be by disease, every little cell will respond; and some day there will be a new body with which to go forward. Give the body the view of life as a bright, Joyful Journey to something always new and interesting, and it will tug at Its chains until they are broken and It bounds forward, free. And no matter how fettered we may seem to be by the work In hand, how It may seem to shut us In, view life as a Journey, and Insensibly the faculties will take on fresh vigor. With the thought that by the very nature of the life that is in one, he must go on, he can't stand etill, there flows through one a vitalizing energy that quickens every part of his being to better endeavor. The work in hand is done better. This brings advance ment. And thus life proves Itself. The thing In it that calls for progrès* brings progress. And so will life viewed as a Journey with the standard of what llf« la. In hand as a staff, will not life give us more Joy and brightness and Irorth-whlle results than If we look on It bitterly, resentfully, as an experi ence that has nothing for us but ill?
