“When you regain a sense of your life as a journey of discovery, you return to rhythm with yourself.
When you take the time to travel with reverence, a richer life unfolds before you.
Moments of beauty begin to braid your days.“
John O’Donohue – Excerpt from BEAUTY
At the dawn of possibilities
On the path of a thoughtful new beginning
Our gaze fixed on the horizon straight ahead.
Our bodies breathing in and out
Our hoping hearts beating in anticipation
Our minds taking it all in.
We are ready.
We have traveled the way here through rain and sunshine
Worthy of our gifts, challenges, and hopes.
What is calling out to us?
How do we shape the foundation for our journey onward?
How do we prepare to meet the road ahead?
We begin slowly and with ease
Right where we stand
At home with ourselves and each other.
We aim for ease and simplicity
We stay present, kind, and open
We receive, we give of ourselves.
We go from there.
Along the way
We reflect and allow
Our understanding and perspective
Our ways and responses
Our view of ourselves, our world, and our expectations
To be transformed.
“We must make our way by simply going where we sense we need to go.”
