Emerging, but not alone

This morning Julian Summerhayes shared a beautiful photograph and some inspiring words from John O’Donohue, in Benedictus.

As an encouragement, here is a longer extract to feed your soul for the task ahead. Giving voice to what really matters.

We seem to think that beginning is a setting out from a lonely point along some line of direction into the unknown. This is not the case. Shelter and energy come alive when a beginning is embraced. Goethe says that once the commitment is made, destiny conspires with us to support and realise it. We are never as alone in our beginnings as it might seem at the time. A beginning is ultimately an invitation to open towards the gifts and growth that are stored up for us. To refuse to begin can be an act of great self-neglect.

Go well today.

We are cheering you on.
