Do you feel it?
You have been called to go on a journey. In fact, we all have. But only the brave among us are willing to answer the call and take that first step on the path. Even when you ignore it, there is a voice inside of you asking for more, a yearning rising up deep within you beckoning for something greater.
Fortunately, each of us possesses innate abilities to undertake this journey and complete the quest. As daunting as the path appears, we have the power within us to traverse it and reap the rewards that it holds. We often forget our deep power to accomplish these feats, but if we pay attention, we find that life provides us with the wake up calls and nudges to spur us into action and guide us in the right direction.
Undertaking a Wilderness Walk requires us to embrace all aspects of life- love and fear, joy and grief, light and dark. There is no light without shadow nor comfort without pain; to avoid one is to lose the ability to experience the other. As long as we continue to flee from the darker aspects, we remain fearful, unseen and unfulfilled. As long as there are parts of ourselves that we cannot love and therefore hide from the world, we spend our lives running away and blinding ourselves to who we truly are.
Are You ready to stop running, hiding, and avoiding?
The Wilderness Walk is a portal into the dark and daunting places that hold the deepest treasures. Although the path is formidable, a Wilderness Walker does not have to undertake the journey alone. A tribe of travelers takes the journey together along similar terrain, bearing witness to one another’s challenges, victories and discoveries. Being seen by others in this way can allow the Wilderness Walker to feel loved and accepted in ways she or he never had dreamed possible, easing the way to deeper healing.
To experience true aliveness, you must be willing to undertake the journey through dark and unknown places to discover life’s true riches. We all come to the trailhead and hear the call of the road at some point in our lives. Step onto the path, and see where it leads.
The time is now.
