There is no turning back, you 
know. Once the soul is awake,
and the voice of spirit beckons,
there is only one direction. Of
course, the route may look a
bit circuitous. Yes, it may
look as if you move every which
way but forwards until you see
the broader view, the one that
shows you with arms thrown
wide, embracing absolutely
everything, your stride
carrying you to the exact spot
on which you stand.

The path to truth moves through
some quite peculiar landscapes,
and there are times you'll swear
you're going nowhere.
But if you tried to iron out
the twists and turns and make it
all into a perfect, straight and
narrow walk to the finish line -
think how boring and predictable
that would be! Where you need
to be right now is here, just here,
precisely where you are.

~ Danna Faulds Taken from "One Soul, More Poems From the Heart of Yoga"

How readily the mind decides it wants to be somewhere else, especially when we meet unexpected challenges. Yet our inner guide continues to lead us home, despite the disruptions, in the highs and lows of life. Where we need to be is precisely where we are.

  9. This is such a timely and wise post, Val. “There is no turning back, you know. Once the soul is awake, and the voice of spirit beckons, there is only one direction.” Ignoring the advice of our soul, or at least its restless nature, is never a good idea ~ keep on moving and enjoy the journey. Excellent timing, as autumn, seems to be a month of introspection and change 🙂 I wish you a great season ahead.
