Knee deep into a Quest of Quests?
This quote really spoke to me:
“I've come to believe that there exists in the universe something I call "The Physics of The Quest" — a force of nature governed by laws as real as the laws of gravity or momentum. And the rule of Quest Physics maybe goes like this: "If you are brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting (which can be anything from your house to your bitter old resentments) and set out on a truth-seeking journey (either externally or internally), and if you are truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue, and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher, and if you are prepared – most of all – to face (and forgive) some very difficult realities about yourself... then truth will not be withheld from you." Or so I've come to believe.”
― Elizabeth Gilbert,
It stopped me in my tracks. It spoke such clarity to me that I read it over and over again. Now don't get me wrong, I have always been a change, grow and education addict... I love the expansion of my brain and also the pain of changing this up. It is scary and
disheveling and it takes you so far out of your comfort zone you feel like you are suspended somehow. BUT that's OK. As for education this quote defined they way I experience learning somehow. It is often when you hear or read or see something that resonates so much with where you are at that given moment that the learning really sinks in. They say when the student is ready the teacher will come. I say when the student is ready, the learning will be revealed...even if it has been there all along. Are you being brave enough?
