Where does your path lead? That’s the question of a lifetime, isn’t it?
My Unitarian-Universalist background tells me that discovering our own path is a life mission that we should support in each other, involving questioning, seeking, journeying toward a greater individual understanding of the Divine. Ah, the Divine–that which we all know when we feel it, but which we find so hard to accept when others see it differently.
This mystery of revealing a greater Truth is at the core of writing for me. I write toward what I want to understand, whether that is how it feels to truly see the future (“Being Emily”) or what it means to be an outsider finding one’s home (Eve’s Garden) or how individuals collide and make a new whole (“Space Walk”)*. All involve mystery to me.
Yesterday I wrote three paragraphs of a story that scared the bejesus out of me, a questioning of my entire being up to now. Today, I’m going to dive deeper into the abyss and see what I can bring up to air.
What is your mystery? Where does your path lead? What are you trying to reveal?
