365 Inspirations—168: A Calling

“Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love.”—Rumi

Tomorrow, or maybe the next day, I head out on a very undefined pilgrimage, spiritual journey, writing, meditation, yoga retreat. It will involve a bit of travel, but I'm not sure how much this time around.

I'm feeling called to work on a few projects that seem to be taking shape every moment. I am getting pieces of information on these projects every day.

I know it sounds strange. In my past, I often operated in a very linear way. I measured things that I could see, taste, touch, feel—tangible things.

More recently, I've been letting go of a linear way of thinking and have adopted a more holistic view of things.

I believe some things can be explained, but some simply cannot.

I'm not afraid of the unknown anymore.

In fact, I'm ready to dive deeper into the unknown. I'm ready to loosen the tight strings that have bound me to a rational view of things.

Life is much more than we are able to see. Life, in its entirety, is incomprehensible.

I'm excited to venture out soon. I let you know more about my journey as it unfolds.

Have you ever felt called to do something different than you normally do?


  1. How exciting! I am looking forward to hearing about your adventures, especially writing. I wish you a safe journey and a peaceful heart.

  2. That's part of the reason I am traveling in my RV. I keep saying that there is something out there for me to discover, to decide where I will end up and to figure out what to do with the rest of my life. I thought I would be a tax accountant forever, but do not miss giving it up and not doing it for the past few years.

  3. Wonderful to hear that you are going out on a new journey! When I read: "I'm not afraid of the unknown anymore," I thought, "Could I write that? Could I be that way?" I still feel anxiety about many aspects in life but I am building courage to handle the unknown. It's incredible how you are living your life Katherine!
