When you get lost, celebrate. In every great journey, heroes lose their way sometimes, doubt their own power sometimes. Get lost, and find yourself. Find presence, the breath, the beating of the heart> Take the giant step of not knowing which step to take; a perfect step. Trust the doubting too. And your path will find you, moment to moment. Your true path cannot be lost, ever.
Jeff Foster: Reasons to Celebrate, Page 164 – 165: – The Way of Rest.

So let’s remember to celebrate life, supposedly we only have one.
Namaste until nest time, my dear friends.
