Stay Open to the Journey

Most of us live in this paradox: we are trailing glimpses of insight, knowing why we are here, and not knowing. We both remember and forget. We are imbued with wonder, and sometimes consumed with loss, from childhood on; we pursue our purpose in a thousand ways.
        - Christina Baldwin, The Seven Whispers: A Spiritual Practice for Times Like These

The Seven Whispers
  Maintain peace of mind
  Move at the pace of guidance
  Practice certainty of purpose
  Surrender to surprise
  Ask for what you need and offer what you can
  Love the folks in front of you
  Return to the world
                 - Christina Baldwin

Opening into imagination enables a suspension of judgment. A move into a state of the true self occurs where reverie takes over. 

Fantasies fling us along paths to observe obstacles. We marvel at aspects of self forgotten or not considered.  

The journey enlightens and enriches.

If lost, we acquire new ways of trail-finding while listening to our inner voice of dreams and passions. 

A step off the path merges into possibilities without fears.

Smell the colors, taste the breeze.

Attitude and Awareness provide the guidance.

Rocks along the road lead to wonder and design.
