Sometimes, in our journey through life, we get a little lost.
We went right instead of left, and now we can’t find our way.
We end up in unfamiliar territory, and it scares us.
Yet if we trust and continue on our path, we always find our way home.
We find our way back to that safe place.
We find our way back to our community.
We find our way back to our hearts.
It is not always easy.
Often, the way back is fraught with peril.
There are monsters and frightening beasts along the way.
Many of those shadows are just the dark impressions that linger from our childhood.
Some of them are phantoms we’ve accumulated throughout our lives.
All of them are places within ourselves that we didn’t feel safe.
Perhaps were there was a huge loss.
Or where our essential needs were not met.
And still there is always a path that leads back home.
There is a light inside that guides us.
That pulls us forward.
That reminds us there is a way out of the darkness.
Sometimes we find it quickly.
Sometimes it takes a long time.
In the end, we all find our way home, even if it doesn’t seem like it to others.
Yet we know we’ve found it.
It is that place where there is peace in our hearts.
