Ancient Canyon

The journey is simply being. If you are, you are journeying. Our only choice is whether to consciously embrace the journey, or spend the preciousness of time in fantasies about the journey.

And the difference between fantasy and reality? You cannot leave reality behind, it will only stowaway in your psyche, in some haunting way. You will have to encounter it again sooner or later, and probably in pain.

The journey is being. Tenderness and clarity of mind are the great wings that spread, at dawn, in the ancient canyon that is the expanse of you.
