Honor the search

Perhaps each of us has a starved place, and each of us knows deep down what we need to fill that place.  To find the courage to trust and honor the search, to follow the voice that tells us what we need to do, even when it doesn’t seem to make sense, is a worthy pursuit.

    Oh, yes indeedy. I think we all have that place. It’s the filling it part that can be a little tricky, no?

    I’m off to pull this book out again – thanks for the reminder!

    I wonder sometimes if the search is also for acceptance and joy in the emptiness.

    So true. All of the answers are inside of us. The hunger, the search,the frustrations, are a calling, an itch, from the inside to unfold, to express. To be all of ourselves.
