My journey

My journey began
by arriving at Plum Village
to be greeted by the sign,
'I have arrived, I am home'.

my journey began before then and
that was a stepping stone on the path.

My journey begins afresh each morning
in a silent sitting,
being with the breath
and seeing what arises.

My journey is a spiral
that keeps coming back
to the silent space
at the centre of the heart.

My journey is often walked alone
and is never walked alone.

My journey lasts a lifetime,
several lifetimes
and begins and is concluded
with each awakened footstep.

My journey starts and finishes
each time I acknowledge
'I am home'.
