To be happy is to know where we should be on the path even with pain, in effect living from the still-point of our eternal flame. This is where we grow, step-by-step closer to the Grail… JC
At times the refusal of the journey is the most important part of the path, a turning point that can never be rescinded. The prince will not keep a promise made out of his own convenience to the frog that found the golden ball and returned it. The promise may have been too hard to keep or it’s thought as unimportant. Now the situation is in flux, nothing is as it was for the entire cast… the prince, the ball, and the frog. Suddenly a ship is ready to set sail for adventure; the virgin birth of the hero is at hand. But this journey is without fanfare. There will be no marching bands to send our pilgrim off. Nor will there be a ticker tape parade upon the return.
You will soon learn that this road is not so much less traveled as it is not noticed or felt unimportant until the journey is over. But rest assure, we all take it, mindful or not. And when it’s taken it is never easy, it is hard and lonely if you’re so inclined to think that way. For it is right for each traveler in each their own skin. Through all the pathways, turns and twist, one’s forced to confront oneself and the promises made. This is death and rebirth. The adventure’s fueled by your resolve. A leveling out enters your life as you accept your ever-changing transformation. The reward is wisdom…
