It's a beautiful way to say it, and of course, we have this in English ..
you have shown me the way...
There's a very famous song, "I want you, to show me the way..."
I wonder how you're feeling?
There's ringing in my ears.
And no one to relate to, save the sea.
Who can I believe in?
I'm kneeling on the floor
There has to be a force, who do I call?
The stars are out and shining.
But all I really want to know:
Oh won't you, show me the way? Every day.
I want you, to show me the way.
-- Peter Frampton, 1974
To actually use "path", you could certainly say:
"You've shown me the path."
That's beautiful. A common one like that is "You've shown me the way forward"
Note too that "pathfinder" is a real phrase of praise, particularly in the US. "She's the pathfinder, she shows us the way. She really leads the group." Cheers...
Don't forget too that simply saying "you're a true leader" is exactly the "path sentiment" ... you're the one who can lead us on the "path" of life.
