Be My Path, Be My Guide

I’ve heard that the Hopi Indians believe one has to cross the earth up and down and sideways before he finds his center.

I agree.

But I'm also convinced that our center is not something we find within us but something we find ourselves within. We are so busy trying to focus ourselves into a pinpoint that we never realize that we are a pinpoint in a vastness infinitely more focused than ourselves. Of course we are not the center of that vastness; but in it, we are centered.

Perhaps as a fish might need to leap above the surface to understand what he is within, so we may need to find ourselves off- center, or out of center, out of round if you will, in order to allow ourselves to be put back.
