The searchers

To follow your gift is a calling to a wonderful adventure of discovery.  Some of the deepest longing in you is the voice of your gift,  The gift calls you to embrace it , not to be afraid of it.*
(John O’Donohue)

It’s amazing what can be found with a little energetic searching.

It may not even be the thing you set out to seek, but that doesn’t matter if you find something more precious.

At first you cursed the forking road but then grew to love it.

More important for this than the map is the compass and the most important compass lies within:

“We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time. “**

Every day our lives are speaking to us the way we must go.

(*From John O’Donohue’s Eternal Echoes.)
(**From T S Eliot’s Little Gidding.)
