I’ve posted this before. I’m posting it again. Now is as good a time as any. I just like to remind myself, occasionally, that this is what it’s all about. I am going out, don’t have time for a new original post tonight. I hope this will do. Elizabeth Gilbert, from Eat Pray Love. Brilliant.
The Physics of the Quest
The Physics of the Quest — a force in nature governed by laws as real as the laws of gravity. The rule of the Quest Physics goes something like this…
If you are brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting,
which can be anything from your house to bitter old resentments…
and set out on a truth-seeking journey, either eternally or internally.
And if you are truly willing,
to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue.
And if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher.
And if you are prepared, most of all,
to face and forgive some difficult realities about yourself.
Then the truth will not be withheld from you.
