BEGIN NOW: “Take your first step.”
Every journey starts with the first step. There is no moment better than the present one to begin. You might not feel ready, but nevertheless, it’s now time to start. A new cycle is beginning. Wipe the slate clean and get going. Release familiar routines, stagnant situations, or challenging relationships that no longer support or empower you. You are at the end of an old cycle and beginning a new and exciting one. Set your sails for a new horizon.
The Sacred Traveler Wants You to Know: There are times when the traveler needs to separate from family, friends, and acquaintances to enter new places within himself or herself. Sometimes the traveler must go beyond what is familiar in order to be open to transformation and change. Thus, the journey brings a heightened sense of awareness and ignites mindfulness. Sometimes it can feel difficult to take that first step, but unless you do you’ll never know the joy and fulfilment that await you. Do it now. In the words of Lao Tzu, “A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”
