The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~Albert Einstein
We are each on a journey. Whether you walk, stroll, tiptoe, or run, every step involves the practice of awareness. We generally know where we are and what we are doing. We know how we feel about the situation at hand even if it’s contradictory to appearances.
Our actions and reactions to what we see, hear, think, and feel paint a portrait. When we reflect upon these behaviors our physical journey becomes a spiritual one. In a sense, we are journaling the journey even if we are not physically writing it on paper. We are living and learning every step of the way.
We are wildflowers in the woods. While rooted to the ground, we stretch to the sun and sway with the wind. We can exercise our freedom and question our belief system without compromising self. It is from the questioning in which we discover self and solidify our relationship with spirit.
Do you ever question whether you have chosen the path you are walking or whether the path has chosen you? You are both a contributor to all you meet along your way as well as a receiver.
The answers we seek are within us. We must learn to trust ourselves.
Pay attention. Look and listen. Not just to others, but to your heart and soul. Every step, every consideration, is one step closer to self.
Do you journal? Do you write about your days or your daze? Do you prefer to do your reflection in thought or ink?
