I’d like to invite you to take a journey with me. You won’t need much for this trip. Just an open mind, and an open heart. Although no two paths are the same, let me serve as a guidepost, shining a light in all directions. Which direction you choose will be your own. As an artist and seeker, I hope to use this blog to inspire you to take a journey inward. If you start the journey, it will be the most rewarding of your life.
Let’s begin with the words of the great author, poet and mystic, Kahlil Gibran:
“Your heart knows in silence the secrets of the days and the nights.
But your ears thirst for the sound of your heart’s knowledge.
You would know in words that which you have always known in thought.
You would touch with your fingers the naked body of your dreams.
And it is well you should.
The hidden well-spring of your soul must rise and run murmuring to the sea;
And the treasure of your infinite depths would be revealed to your eyes.
But let there be no scales to weigh your unknown treasure;
And seek not the depths of your knowledge with staff or sounding line.
For self is a sea boundless and measureless.
Say not, ‘I have found the truth,’ but rather, ‘I have found a truth.’
Say not, “I have found the path of the soul.”
Say rather, “I have met the soul walking upon my path.”
For the soul walks upon all paths.
The soul walks not upon a line, neither does it grow like a reed.
The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus of countless petals.”
~Kahlil Gibran 1883-1931
