A journey of a thousand miles

"I haven't a clue as to how my story will end. But that's all right. When you set out on a journey and night covers the road, you don't conclude that the road has vanished. And how else could we discover the stars?"
   --Nancy Willard

"In the degree that we remember and retell our stories and create new ones we become the authors, the authorities, of our own lives."
  --Sam Keen

A journey of a thousand miles
Begin with such a single step;
My heart is but a traveler
That journeys for what it can keep.

To walk like pilgrims keeping faith
At all of promises' allure;
And all of these a wandering
Can turn the heart serene and pure.

Approaching close a Holy Shrine
Where everyone must take refuge;
A journey that we all partakes
Must end the way we makes of it.
