One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. “Which road do I take?” she asked. “Where do you want to go?” was his response. “I don’t know,” Alice answered. “Then,” said the cat, “it doesn’t matter.”   ~Lewis Carroll

when you wait and the one you love comes home…….

inquiry for today~   how far will you travel to come home again and again?

no other way to be

On a true pilgrimage, we soon discover that the journey has its own rhythm and momentum. We realize, if our hearts are listening, that there are secret destinations that reveal themselves as our path unfolds. Following the way made by waling means listening for what is life-giving but on the inner pilgrimage also involves descending into the depths of our being. This means we must examine the places where woulds and shame dwell. We are called to retrieve those lost parts and welcome them back in to the wholeness of our being. When we yield, we allow a holy pause, notice where we are forcing things, and then we can let them go. We can allow each of them to dissolve into this endless embrace, yielding to the greater force at work within us.      ~Christine Valters Paintner
