The way to tomorrow

Our possibilities are not limitless, but they are at least infinitely above our present possibilities of imagination.*
Frank Laubach

Each life is a mystery that is never finally available to the mind’s light or questions. That we are here is a huge affirmation; somehow life needed us and wanted us to be. To sense and trust this primeval acceptance can open a vast spring of trust within the heart. It can free us into a natural courage which casts out fear and opens up our lives to become voyages of discovery, creativity and compassion.**
John O’Donohue

It is said that
tomorrow never comes,
And yet there is a way in which it can be transformed into
today.

Yesterday may not have been all that we wanted it to be,
But now it’s gone and we have this opportunity to
start over.

The way to tomorrow
is not some plan or a map to be followed:
It is people with whom we connect,
including yourself.
Connect to yourself and your hope,
Join with with those who will help you –
The main characteristic of a guide is that they help the hero win^
Also relate to the reality of your world,
And,
If you have a god,
Be in relationship, too.

Begin writing out and about these things every day,
And your way, or path, will emerge.
Then, later in the day,
Find ways of exploring, experimenting,
Asking your questions of the way:

Begin. With the humility of someone who’s not sure, and the excitement of someone who knows that it’s possible.^^
