Travel hopefully

If life is like a journey, that means we're all travellers. The map and compass image pays homage to the process of travelling hopefully as do the lovely words below.


Supported journey
‘The sense of lonely struggle and imminent failure
is replaced with an experience of life
as a supported journey to mastery.’
Steve Biddulph


The road is made by walking
‘Wanderer, your footsteps are the road, and nothing more;
wanderer, there is no road, the road is made by walking.
By walking one makes the road, and upon glancing behind
one sees the path that never will be trod again.’
Antonio Machado


A choice
‘There is the path of fear
and the path of love.
Which will we follow?’
Jack Kornfield


Autobiography in five short chapters
‘CHAPTER ONE
I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost... I am helpless.
It isn't my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.

CHAPTER TWO
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don't see it.
I fall in again.
I can't believe I am in the same place.
But, it isn't my fault.
It still takes me a long time to get out.

CHAPTER THREE
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in. It's a habit.
My eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault. I get out immediately.

CHAPTER FOUR
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

CHAPTER FIVE
I walk down another street.’
Portia Nelson


May the road rise to meet you
‘May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.’
Traditional Gaelic blessing
