I am enjoying reacquainting myself with John O’Donohue’s wisdom. Enjoy this re-post ๐Ÿ’›

Mindful travel
The maze to the side of Joggins Fossil Centre. (Sandra Phinney)

May you travel in an awakened way,
Gathered wisely into your inner ground;
That you may not waste the invitations
Which wait along the way to transform you.

May you travel safely, arrive refreshed,
And live your time away to its fullest;
Return home more enriched, and free
To balance the gift of days which call you.

~ John O’Donohue

Whether your journey is over land and sea

Or by way of your inner landscape

May these words lighten the way

And help you to find your middle ground

Bringing new awareness and readiness for whatever comes next

    • Thanks Dave! I am not traveling until January 1st., but so many peeps are embarking on their trips to see loved ones, or reflecting on this time if there are apart from them.
      It feels good to be here and ready for Christmas, just the 2 of us.
      Wishing you a joyful and loving time over the Holidays ๐Ÿ’•
