Love: The Path & The Destination

What I love is the path & the destination.    Susan Korsnick

Time takes flight on wings of joy when I’m doing something I love.  I forget about meals & even sleep when I’m immersed in moments that bring contentment & meaning to my life.  For example, I’ve often looked up from gardening to see the sky has moved beyond dusk into that inky blueness just before nightfall.  It’s that late already?!  Until my attention is drawn away from what I love to do, I’m neither exhausted nor hungry.  The same thing happens when I’m creating art or pursuing my spirituality.   Focused on what I love, I have no concept of time or limitations of any kind.

When friends are being supportive, they say things like, “What does your heart tell you to do?” & “Follow your passion.””   We know we should listen to our hearts but sometimes the obligations of life roar in our ears & drown out the encouraging whisper of Self.  The more we fill our days with commitments & obligations, the more we are distanced from what we love.  Sure, we all have duties we must perform… bills, jobs, errands, chores, etc.  But it’s vital to the human spirit that we immerse ourselves in what nourishes us on a deeper level so we can perform the “musts”.

Yes, what I love is the path I follow & each moment lived in love is a destination unto itself.

“Don’t worry about what the world needs.  Ask what makes you come alive & do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”  Howard Thurman
