Seeking Guides in A Pathless Land
Truth is a pathless land, said Krishnamurti, meaning, of course, that we each are left to find our own way.
Yet I still think there is much to be said for looking to guides. Anyone can teach us a bit about our own truth if we are open and listening.
This week, while I've been retreating, I've been looking to Isadora Duncan and other dancers who blazed trails before me. She was quite the rebel, actually.
And I am looking to Shakti...
...and Kali for some help.
In other traditions, you may look to Morrigan or Joan of Arc.
Yes. Strong women not afraid of a little blood and gore. Not afraid to cut down some of that jungle as they work their way through it. That's what I need -- some of that fierceness.
