The Journey …


I am awake, I am alive, and the journey continues and what a journey of healing it has been!

Days of sheer childlike wonder in the home of my parents, where love eclipsed the lack of dollars, leaving us feeling rich well into my teen years.

Then death touched my world, followed by the introduction of violence. Sitting with my thoughts in shelters of safety, I couldn’t help but think, “This is not the path I was meant to travel. This is not the path any of us were meant to travel”.

Years of doubt, denial and confusion finally lead to a revolution. A rejection of what “I should do” allowed space to discover what I wanted to do and then, after another tremendous loss, a sense of “Eff it!” as I began to do what I wanted to do.

This morning, I relish the richness that again is my life – a life of peace and acceptance, a life filled with social justice and knowledge gathering. I relish my home and all this day brings including you my dear friend.

Today, take a moment to relish your journey. Identify the chapters. Find the teachings, the blessings, and the gifts. Leave the rest. You have no room for the baggage after all, not if you wish to travel in joy.
