Let no-one keep you from your journey

December 10, 2017

Be singular in your purpose. This is what you are here for. This journey of yours. Let no-one keep you. 

Let no one keep you from your journey,
no rabbi or priest, no mother
who wants you to dig for treasures
she misplaced, no father
who won’t let one life be enough,
no lover who measures their worth
by what you might give up,
no voice that tells you in the night
it can’t be done.

Let nothing dissuade you
from seeing what you see
or feeling the winds that make you
want to dance alone
or go where no one
has yet to go.

You are the only explorer.
Your heart, the unreadable compass.
Your soul, the shore of a promise
too great to be ignored.

– Mark Nepo

I am afraid I will be lost in the above labyrinth!

Walk a maze to lose yourself, walk a labyrinth to find yourself!

There is no danger. Only adventure.
