Every journey begins from a place of not knowing what will come, of not having what we wish to have, of not being where we want to be or who we want to be.
It begins with space, an emptiness if you will, that is to be filled with the richness of the process, the fruits of our labour to come.
Having this space also means being aware (sometimes painfully) of its emptiness. At times we might have to let other things go to make the space.
Yet to begin a journey, this is necessary. We have to embrace the absence so that we may appreciate presence.
It is not just about physical or mental space. It is also the space we create in our hearts to accommodate that which we commit to, the openness to accept whatever may come.
And it is the keeping of that space open for the journey, especially in times of difficulty, that makes it possible to complete it and bring something new into our lives.
