Camino Reflections

We can form relationships in an instant but sometimes we choose not to;

We can deepen existing relationships by naming our fears and choosing to walk in another’s shoes, which means we get to listen more and judge less; 

We can understand more about our self from sitting still, or walking quietly, for 10 minutes than we can from reading a book, or listening to a sermon or lecture; 

And, if we choose, we can notice the constant presence of the greatest Principle in all of it. 

How much attention must we give to the terrain as we walk through life? 

Does it matter what kind of pot we use to cook our favorite meal? Or the type of clothes we wear in winter?

Life lives itself. 

Our favorite meal is already that. 

Winter always comes. 

Pay attention to the other stuff.
