Life Is A Journey


Your life’s journey has an outer purpose and an inner purpose.

 The outer purpose is to arrive at your goal or destination, to accomplish what you set out to do, to achieve this or that, which of course implies future.

But if your destination, or the steps you are going to take in the future take up so much of your attention that they become more important to you than the step you are taking now, then you completely miss the journey’s inner purpose, which has nothing to do with where you are going or what you are doing, but everything to do with how.

 It has nothing to do with future but everything to do with the quality of your consciousness at this moment.  

  • The outer purpose belongs to the horizontal dimension of space and time
  • The inner purpose concerns the deepening of your being in the vertical dimension of the timeless now.

 Your outer journey may contain a million steps; your inner journey has only one: the step you are taking right now.

 As you become more deeply aware of this one step, you realize that it already contains within itself all the other steps as well as the destination.
