The Extraordinary Journey…

I know it has been a while since I last posted, but so much life has happened in the last few weeks…

Let me start off by telling you, or rather, let me start off by asking you something…do you know that place where your soul, your body and your mind is just happy and at peace? You feel complete, loved, appreciated and totally at home?

Do you know that place? Have you ever just sat there and enjoyed and appreciated the feeling it gives? That feeling of complete surrender to something so much bigger and more beautiful than you ever imagined? That place where nothing and no one can hurt you, betray you or do you any kind of injustice…

Well, I spent the last few weeks on a journey to figure out how to get to this place…it was not a physical journey, like let’s get into the car and drive to that place…Nooo, it was a journey of a very different kind…an exhausting yet fulfilling journey into completely unknown and unchartered territory…it was a soul journey. It is a journey into a place that there are no maps, no GPS coordinates and no google street views of… there are no short cuts, no highways and byways, there is just one road to this place and the it is so narrow that there is space for only one on this journey…a road trip for ONE and that one is YOU and you alone. You cannot tag someone in to help you or to ride along with you. You are reliant on you and what you have inside… if it is demons you have inside, then you have a rough ride, and if it is anything else that you have to face and sort out well, hmmm, sorry…it is still a rough ride, perhaps just a little less scary in some spots.

You know how when you want to go on a holiday you plan where you will go, when will be the best time and then of course how you will get there? Well this journey is nothing like that…you are thrown into the middle, or rather, you jump or are pushed into the middle of all this madness and you suddenly realise that you need to fly or fall to your death…fortunately for us humans we have an instinctive will to want to live and survive…so actually you are not given much choice…you need to swim…

There is no right time, perfect place or best way of travelling…you simply get up one morning and find yourself in the midst of this incredibly scary, confusing, frustrating but empowering journey of … where to now??? OMG what do I do now? How will I know if this is the right choice? What if this doesn’t work out? What if this is all just one huge misunderstanding and I look like the fool again? What will people say and how will they react and adapt? What about our children, what if they reject us and we end up losing them? What if, what if, what if???

Well, let me tell you…in hind sight…to hell with everything and everyone…this is your journey, your life, your story and you alone can determine where this will go, how it will get there and what it will be worth…so chin up and buckle up…it might be a rough ride, but the end result will be worth it.
