A good journey begins with knowing where you are and being willing to go somewhere else. Richard Rohr

Which one are you in the story- Stumpy who wants to play; Big Al who had rocky soil; Jimmy who didn't pick the weeds or Bodge who tended to the seed? (Matthew 13:3-23)

In order to climb out of our ditch of deceit and denial we need honesty on our journey and a place of silence for our soul.

"Our own strength is not sufficient for weaving silence into the fabric of daily life. For the hours of the day to be permeated by mindfulness of the divine life we must be engaged in constant struggle, depending on God's grace. Powerful forces are bent on separating us from God, our own souls, and one another through the din of noise and the whirl of preoccupation. Therefore, the gift of silence we seek to cherish is chiefly the silence of adoring love for the mystery of God which words cannot express. In silence we pass through the bounds of language to lose ourselves in wonder. True silence is an expression of love, unlike the taciturnity that arises from fear and avoidnce of relationship." Rule of Life

He who has ears, let them hear.
