I have come to know simple truths that before were so disguised by my complexity

I have come to know simple truths that before were so disguised by my complexity. I have come to know the inner vision that sees with so much clarity. I've come to know me, the gentleness of my spirit, as it may express through love and tenderness. I've come to know power in a way that is personal and creative. My personal power of choice. I've come to know love; love of self and others is the same. I've come to know the oneness of all who walk the planet in an attempt to journey home.

Journeying more deeply into our deepest center

Journeying more deeply into our deepest center and into the world around us pushes us into seeing more deeply into all of life. Not only are we forced to deal with the illusions of our false selves, but also of society. ... The one who begins to live deeply as a contemplative begins to see things as they really are. We are called to deal with the illusions of ourselves, so we can enter into a loving dialogue with the world. We are called to EMBRACE the world as we journey deeper and deeper into ourselves and God. We turn with a singleness of vision, to see God in each new situation, in every person, and every experience -- seeing all those things in a truer perspective.

Discovering the Depths
By William Clemmons

As each piece of the journey is discovered

As each piece of the journey is discovered, honored and treated as holy, then we are able to remember ourselves and recollect the shattered spirit and lives into a new spiritual body. When we reunite ourselves with nature and its manifestations, when we come to reconcile the resonances of the divine world around us with the divine world within us, then healing begins.

~ Normandi Ellis

The longest journey

The longest journey is
the journey inward.

~ Dag Hammerskjold
Markings
By Dag Hammarskjold

We are made for joy and woe

Joy and woe are woven fine,
A clothing for the soul divine;
Under every grief and pine
Runs a joy with silken twine.
It is right it should be so;
We are made for joy and woe;
And when this we rightly know,
Through the world we safely go.

~ William Blake

With each step we arrive

With each step we arrive.

Ultimately, the journey of the human path is an individual effort; no one can do it for us. However, we are not entirely alone on this journey. Love and grace serve as guides to lead the way -- when we choose to listen.

~ from STAND LIKE A MOUNTAIN, FLOW LIKE WATER by Brian Luke Seaward

The spiritual journey is one of continually falling on your face

The spiritual journey is one of continually falling on your face, getting up, brushing yourself off, looking sheepishly at God, and taking another step.

~ Aurobindo

By Sri Aurobindo

Spirits on a human path

We are not humans on a spiritual path. Rather we are spirits on a human path.

~ Jean Shinoda Bolen

Journey into Silence

Journey into Silence;
blessings await you there.

~ Nan Merrill

In the luminous darkness through which we travel on our human journey,

In the luminous darkness through which we travel on our human journey, we are often lonely but never alone. Road-weary, overwhelmed by the magnitude of the difficulties we face during our brief days, we are tempted to despair or to settle for cheap optimism. But in the deep place of the spirit, we are moved and called forth to undertake this ongoing adventure by the yearning, restless, and creative One who -- though called by the ten thousand names of God -- is still clothed in marvelous silence.
