Into the Wilderness of Intuition

You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover is yourself. ~Alan Alda. 

Leaving my city of comfort is not easy; I've lived here far too long.  I know exactly where everything is and how it all operates.  There are few surprises which is good because I don't care much for surprises.  But I have to admit, I am becoming more curious about what might be in the wilderness.  And I'm beginning to study road maps to find the best route to the wilderness for me.  (I'm not a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants type person.)

I know the wilderness is still a long ways away from here but it is becoming a consideration - maybe even an actual goal.  And I do know this much for sure:  I am much closer to it today than I was yesterday!  And I like that.



  1. Interesting post. I find that as I get older, I am more likely to take the road not taken. Courage? Ignorance? Or willingness?? I don't know; but I do know that for me, it is being true to myself!

  2. Perhaps some of that carving The Great Sculptor is doing on our 'marble' selves is carving away the fears we used to live in..... so we have the courage and freedom to be more adventuresome... even take a road into the wilderness.

    After all, He promised never to leave us alone. So what'd be the risks, eh?

    I think I need to write that on an index card and keep with me at all times!
