My Journey to Wisdom
by Joyce Rupp
Once upon a time a child of happiness danced upon the land, knew friendship with the earth
and celebrated life with her love of solitude and simple things.
She grew into a young woman, whose vision of self was clouded, clothed with the complexities of insecurity and the necessity of leaving the hallowed womb of the quiet earth.
She walked into cities of strangers, straining her inner eye to catch the slightest hint of the beauty that had energized her younger days when she played upon the earth.
Days stretched into months and then years went by.
She slowly changed by going deeper, deeper, into her Center.
Never understanding why the desire to go deeper was there but always knowing there was no other choice than to follow at all costs.
Darkness often loomed up large against her searching journey.
Risk and Truth became her companions.
She met Compassion and then Wisdom came to greet her.
So close, at times, were these companions that she wept for their intensity and her unworthiness.
Still, they walked with her, and everywhere she went, her companions reached out and blessed the people of her life.
She could only kneel in gratitude, offering her heart of praise to the Divine Companion who had faithfully kept the kindling of love
burning in her heart.
