I love passageways.  I love pathways that lead to mystery, beauty, and places not seen before.  Pathways take us from here to there.  Sometimes they have crossroads, forks in the end that require a decision, and other times they end nowhere.  That “nowhere” is still not the same spot you began on through the journey.  Life is never about the destination.  We learn through the journey, each step leading into another.  That’s the greatness.  That’s where all the lessons of our timeline reside.

It is one thing to travel on a path alone.  It is another to believe that you have been alone on that journey or that the passageway is the only path.  Life is an illusion.  We are never alone.  There’s a higher force drawing us to those unseen places in our soul.  There’s not just one path. Sometimes you don’t really know what’s leading you where.  That’s life!  How you travel that path is more important than what you see at its end.  This is why people go on spiritual pilgrimages.  There is sacredness in the expedition.

We live in a time of accelerated anxieties and fears for uncertainty.  Even though we continue to grow spiritually, we still hold on to the humanness of needing to know everything beforehand.  We choose to carry toxicity in backpacks full of grief, discomfort and heaviness.  Instead of releasing the things we don’t need we piggy-back them to the next place, adding more into the backpack.  Enjoy the process of moving into the mysteries.  It isn’t easy.  It isn’t always lovely.  But, what I am learning is that the path leads you to where you are to go on this life.  Uncover the beauty of what’s hidden through walks, hikes, and pathways.  Life is too short to be carrying the things we will never control.  Walk tall and proud while holding grace, faith and love in your heart!  That’s all you are asked to do from the Divine.  Have a blessed day!

“No single decision you ever made has led in a straight line to where you find yourself now. You peeked down some roads and took a few steps before turning back. You followed some roads that came to a dead end and others that got lost at too many intersections. Ultimately, all roads are connected to all other roads.” ~ Deepak Chopra

  1. Oh. My. God. How I would LOVE to walk the many hidden pathways of PQR! As a child, I used to love walking through old farmhouses, discovering little treasures along the way. My Mom had a friend who had moved to New Hampshire, to an old farm, and we would go visit for a long weekend. One day I found an old spinning wheel in a closed-off bedroom and was entranced by it. At the time it must have been over 100 years old; but other than some dust covering it, it was in perfect condition. I’ve often wondered what happened to it. Mom’s friend and her husband both passed away in the late 60’s, childless, so the estate probably sold off everything. Such a shame! I guess those childhood explorations helped form my love of history. Have a great day, my dear friend! And give that precious grand baby of yours a hug and kiss for me! 🙂

  2. Beautiful words, Millie, and we are a walking and hiking kind of family; always enjoying new beauty and wonder around us and it’s the best way to clear our minds of worry, etc…have a lovely tomorrow!

  3. My mother still tells of waking up at night to find me gone, knowing I wasn’t far…….walking the woods with only the stars or moonlight to guide me. I love the paths that lie undiscovered, for they are surely a truth overlooked by most. Sometimes, I revisit places we traveled when I was young. Commercialism has changed everything, but I’m not surprised to find those old paths still exist….markers left to heaven. ❤ I envy you this place you've created with your friend. It sounds asolutely beautiful.
