One of my favorite past times, as I traveled the world, was participating as a member of the Hash House Harriers Running Club. The premise often involved hundreds of runners (pack or hounds) looking for clues along the road to indicate the correct path, better known as “True Trail” in order to get to the finish line. The clues are left on sidewalks by designated runners, called “Rabbits”. As one might expect the lead rabbit would leave clues for the correct path, while two or three other rabbits would leave misleading signs or “False Trails” enticing anyone willing to follow to a dead end. It was designed to keep the pack together.

Guidance will come to you in physical feelings, such as a feeling in the pit of your stomach.
