Welcome to Homeward Bound

The Sufi says that there are three journeys – the journey from God, the journey to God, and the journey in God.

The constant doing in my younger years eventually caught up to me and created extreme imbalance that was reflected in the neurotic, obsessive thoughts that controlled my life. I had two choices, to give up or to give in. By choosing to give in I had to stop, listen and feel. In this being place I heard the part of me that was crying out. In this being place I felt what my body remembered but my mind forgot. I am so grateful for those anxious thoughts that demanded my attention, by placing me in the present moment, holding my mind captive. At first, I searched for a way out, eventually, I realized I needed to go within. I surrendered to this being a spiritual invitation.
After a lot of self-examination, reflection and prayer, I realized the anxiety occurred when I was running ahead of God or running without God altogether. The seedling for Please Pass the Gravy was planted.

My wish is for you this coming year is peace, as you shift from believing it is not how much you do that matters, but how you do it. I pray, you connect to the essence of your being and bring that to your doing which leads to an authentic life. More important, I hope you trust enough to leave empty spaces within your days, for the dreams bigger than you can imagine that God has planned for your life and are waiting for you to receive.

Dear God, don’t just pass the gravy; pour it on, rich, thick and creamy. I am ready!
