The Gift of Being Lost

Never forget this — you are trying to get lost.
Jose A Alcantra, Excerpts from A Field Guide to Getting Lost

You’re not the only one who’s lost. Though it probably looks like it most of the time.

Most people would do anything to hide that they can’t find the way either.

So much energy expended, sustaining the myth that we have it all together; that we have a clue what life is about in this weird, mysterious existence in which everything is always shifting, always falling apart.

The liberating step is not finding the way but discovering that there is no way to be found, or that we make the way by the way we walk it. Then, at last, we can live fully and courageously with our confusion and not be so burdened by it. And we can reach out to others, to help them do the same.
