You'll Only Find It By Going, There Is No Other Way.

There is a place that is calling to you. You hear its whisper when you get still for a moment. There is a place you need to go because there's a piece of yourself there you need to discover.

Perhaps you'll find it in a piece of art, or the vista that evokes awe like you've never known. It could be as simple as a place in your own town that you love but rarely go. Or maybe it's what you'll discover along the way about suffering, or risk, or perseverance, or joy. Quite likely it will involve someone you meet or journey with.

The reason can only be discovered by going. There is no other way.

As for me, "The mountains are calling me and I must go." I'm heading out for 25 days on one the world's great walks, the Annapurna Circuit. It's going to be a blast. I wonder what I'll discover, what I'll be shown, who I'll meet along the way?

I don't know, but I'm going.

On this walk, yes, but more importantly towards what has been put in me, forged there by unseen hands, skilled beyond imaging. There's something I need to discover and I intend to find out what it is.

Will you go?

I pray you will. Not just for you, but for us. We need you, the real you, the one you'll discover only by going.
