Sometimes deep inside a knock comes. Persistently it knocks. Steadily it calls. “Come and answer the door,” it says, “and do not delay.”
You walk out, perhaps onto a sandy beach, and listen quietly in the dawn for your inner visitor to reveal its purpose. “What do you want?” you ask your deepest self.
If you are lucky–and listen well–the inner visitor will speak. You may feel the words as an answer to a longing. It may feel like a breeze on your cheek. But when you walk away from the beach, you’ll know what you must do.
Just wanting to share with all of you…I’ve booked a ticket out to California for this upcoming weekend. Even though it feels so soon after the Florida trip to visit family, this journey feels right. I’ll be traveling to visit a friend on a mountaintop near Yosemite, followed by a drive up to Lake Tahoe to visit another friend.
In many ways, it feels like a spiritual quest. A pilgrimage to…someplace the deepest self…needs to travel right now. Hopefully I’ll be able to share some photos with you.
(And, best of all, the ticket was free! I have enough accumulated frequent flyer miles. Plus, it’s a slow time of year with both my part-time jobs, so… stay tuned…distant horizons beckon.)
