We are all on a journey. A personal path, a route that only we take. If we walk on our own or with a crowd, it is still our personal journey. We may walk the path with friends, family, loved ones or enemies. It is a journey of purpose and direction, a ‘pilgrimage’ of possibilities.
The weather is changeable, be it reality or metaphor. It depends on where we are, the terrain, the companions, the events. There might be storms, there might be long or short periods of calm and peace, with gentle breezes blowing. We need both sunshine and rain to grow. There is nothing more refreshing than the rain ‘shower’. The water washes us and our path, clearing the dust off our feet and watering the ground we tread.
After sunset, our journey is lit by the lights in the ‘starry’ sky. Moonlight and starlight shine from the heavens, illuminating our path. The stars accompany us as we walk, as we travel. During the day and the night, we can see our way forward.
We might wander into magical lands. Fertile imaginations will conjure potential from anything we encounter. We should remain open to possibilities of new and strange ideas. We might encounter magical ‘mythical’ beings. As we grow in wisdom we will know what creatures to befriend and what ones to beware.
All journeys come to an end or ends. We may stop and start again. An ongoing cycle of roads and paths to cover. But when we stop and rest, we will be in a ‘room’ of our own. Wherever we find ourselves, even if we are outside and on our own we can create our own home.
Rest is vital as we travel. Every day will bring new paths, new challenges, new decisions. We must renew our mind, body and soul, renew them each day and night. As you lay down to rest sing your own ‘lullaby’ and slip into the realm of creative, restful dreams.
Our ‘pilgrimage‘ leads to ‘possibilities‘, take the journey and reap the reward.
