“hoping that the horse would find the way of itself”

“A Hospital assistant, called Yergunov, an empty-headed fellow, known throughout the district as a great braggart and drunkard, was returning one evening in Christmas week from the hamlet of Ryepino, where he had been to make some purchases for the hospital. (…)

At first it had been a still day, but at eight o’clock a violent snow-storm came on, and when he was only about four miles from home Yergunov completely lost his way.

He did not know how to drive, he did not know the road, and he drove on at random, hoping that the horse would find the way of itself.” 
“The Horse-Stealers” by Anton Chekhov

Journey through life can be going through life blindly.

Vacuity of the life can be filled with addiction.

Life can be empty, without purpose, without directions and the life somehow get along when favourable circumstances exist.

And life somehow get along before obstacles appear.
