For the longest time, I thought Life was a planned trip,
Complete with a travel itinerary and a tour guide.
Now I realize that my travels are more like
That Saturday when Cass and I
“Got Lost on Purpose.”
We drove through unfamiliar streets and hidden lanes.
We had no idea where we were going yet
We could consciously choose our path.
“Should we turn right? No – go left!
Let’s find what awaits us there.”
You see, we focus way too much on
Where we’re going and
How we look while going there,
When the secret to Life is in
Knowing how to steer,
Who you’re with, and
What you’ll do
Once you’ve arrived.
Any beginning is a worthwhile beginning to your journey.
Through your intention of searching,
You may discover as I have discovered,
That in the process of aiming for your destination,
The beauty of your path unfolds in magical ways.
The most important journey you can take is The Journey Unto Yourself.
You only have to connect with
The gifts that come your way every day,
Pay attention when a gift shows up,
And say “Yes” to invitations that resonate with you.
Sacredness is not in the show of miracles,
But in the subtle beauty of ordinary lives,
Including your own.
