What I Know for Sure…
I am going to walk the Camino – about 500 miles across northern Spain. I am going alone. I will carry all my things on my own back. I have allowed 40 days. Each day, I will move (forward). Each day, I will see the world around me and give conscious thanks for the abundance and beauty around me and for the gifts that so frequently go unnoticed in the work-a-day world. I will spiritualize my thinking. I will be letting go of mortal illusions that blind me to the Truth.
What I Wonder…
When I return from my pilgrimage, what will others have done with their 40 days? While I am moving forward, making conscious steps, what will friends, family, associates do with their precious 40 days?
Are people trapped by routine or is it fear, is it complacency, inertia?
And who will I be? Will I have changed? Will I really have moved forward?
