A Journey Makes Us Vulnerable - Thomas Merton

Lucy, Russ and Zack - Findhorn Beach

A journey makes us vulnerable, takes us from our more 

secure environments and commits us to the unknown.

Perhaps this is why the journey has so often been our basic

metaphor for life itself. Our life journey is a precarious

pilgrimage, a passage through landscapes of promise and

peril, a crossing from the darkness of the womb to the

shadows of death. We travel in the hope that the light

will not fail to guide us, that the star will not be lost, that

homecoming will be granted and love not witheld.
