after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us."
~ Marcel Proust ~
“The path to our destination is not always a straight one.
We go down the wrong road, we get lost, we turn back.
Maybe it doesn't matter which road we embark on.
Maybe what matters is that we embark.”
~ Barbara Hall ~
A Spirit Walk is not a linear journey. You will journey down many roads and experience many detours, often taking new paths and sometimes returning to old ones. In the end, you will find that you have come full circle, returning to where you began.
If you can turn away from the illusions of the world and reawaken to the awareness of the truth that has always been within you, then your Spirit Walk will return you to the harmony of body, mind and spirit, that the course of living has seduced you away from, and it will have you brought back to your true Way.
“A path is only a path, and there is no affront, to oneself or to others,
in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you .
Look at every path closely and deliberately.
Try it as many times as you think necessary.
Then ask yourself alone, one question . . .
Does this path have a heart?
If it does, the path is good; if it doesn't it is of no use.”
