The Arrival


The Arrival. My journey that began 22 days ago is two-thirds complete. The entrance into the Cathedral of Santiago´s main square was very emotional.  (more than I thought it would have been) My walk of over 200km was full of heartache, pain, sorrow, doubt, joy, beauty, fear, joyfulness and finally release.  I have never walked 200km in my life much less to see a cathedral.  But in that moment there was nothing more beautiful and spectacular than that church.  In that moment I knew I was a part of history.  Past, present and future combined to create now.  The now where all time exists in this moment.  When all of the pilgrims join each other in an end and a beginning of their journeys.  Again the thoughts of to whom much is given much is expected run through my head.

Along the way I accepted my calling onto the path of the mystic.  Not religious per say, but the ancient path of mysticism (wisdom).  It is the one I have fought my whole life and yet knew it was mine.  Along the path I simply said ok, I will do what I was intended to do.  Just 1\3rd of the walk left to pick up the last piece of me.
