Well, actually I’m having two breakfasts. Portions in California aren’t the same as portions in Iowa, that’s all I’ve got to say. Everything going along smoothly so far. I have a bunch of meetings to hurtle yet today but am confident.
Had a terrific boast this AM when I opening the Comments and found the following in there from Diego a classic member of the Marauders. It never hurts to review the Pilgrim Beatitudes any time, any place.
“Wow! The abundance coming from two “seeds”! It’s what I am made to contemplate here with your daily posts. We never walk alone on The Way of Saint James. This apostle studied and learned from Our Lord. He brought this learning to others just as you are doing on your trip and in your writing.
Always in search of The Way, The Truth and The Life!
The Beatitudes of the Pilgrim
Blessed are you pilgrim…
1. If you discover that the Camino opens your eyes to what is not seen.
2. If what concerns you most is not to arrive, as to arrive with others.
3. When you contemplate the Camino and discover it is full of names and dawns.
4. Because you have discovered that the authentic Camino begins when it is contemplated.
5. If your backpack is emptying of things and your heart does not know where to hang up so many feelings and emotions.
6. If you discover that one step back to help another is more valuable than a hundred forward without seeing what is at your side.
7. When you don’t have words to give thanks for everything that surprises you at every twist and turn of the way.
8. If you search for the truth and make of the Camino a life and of your life a Way, in search of the One who is the Way, the Truth and the Life.
9. If on the Way you meet yourself and gift yourself with time, without rushing, as not to disregard the image of your heart.
10. If you discover that the Camino holds a lot of silence; and the silence of prayer; and the prayer of meeting with God who is waiting for you.
¡Dios te bendiga Felipe!
OK, and thank you for all the other lovely comments you Caminoheads. And off we go to the day. Saint James Again loves, Felipé.
