Taipei 101 is one the tallest buildings in Asia and for a time was considered as the tallest skyscraper in the world. It stretches over half a kilometer long, with 101 floors from the ground. It has also the fastest-moving elevator in the world that can reach the top speed of over 37 miles per hour. How fast is fast? Imagine going up 89 floors in a record time of 30 seconds. This is as quick as one TV commercial.
This building is located at the heart of the city of Taipei. My wife and I were totally mesmerized and amazed by the fact that this kind of structure exists. If you are at the top of the building, you would be able to have a glimpse of the whole of Taipei. If you finish the guided tour of Taipei, it is as if you have already seen and toured the entire city.
It was a blessing that our hotel was only 10 minutes away from Taipei 101. Just in case one would get lost, he needs not to be afraid. All that one needs to do would be to tell the taxi driver to bring him to Taipei 101 and he would already be able to find his way going to the hotel.
Our point of reference when we were there was Taipei 101. Wherever we went, when it was time to come home, we just informed the taxi drivers that Taipei 101 was our destination, then the they all gave their nod and brought us there.
Now what does the building of Taipei has to do with my blog?
This whole building of Taipei 101 just reminded me of one important lesson while we were navigating and discovering a foreign land. “Never be afraid of getting lost. In case I am lost, all I need to do is just go back to Taipei 101 and I will just be 10 minutes away from home.”
This paints a picture of having a relationship with God. The place you are entering may be an unfamiliar territory. The new business you are starting maybe or the course you are taking may be so new to you. The relationship that you are developing may seem to be mysterious to you. You may be asking and wondering if what you are doing is the right thing, and if you are moving to the right direction. If you feel unsure and lost, all you need to do is just go back to God. The building of Taipei 101 reminded me of God. If ever I am lost in Taipei, Taipei 101 would be my point of reference, my light house. I should not be afraid and I should feel secure. Just in case I get lost in life, all I need to do is just go back to seeking God and I will be 10 minutes away from my true home.
Do you feel lost? Are you not sure with your decision making process? Do you feel stressed out and perplexed, wondering if you are heading onto the right direction? I think it is time for you to find your Taipei 101. It is a good thing that I found mine and now it is time to find yours.
