What is it to be a pilgrim, in our lives, in our world today?
From Phil Cousineu’s The Art of Pilgrimage: “In each of us dwells a wanderer, a gypsy, a pilgrim. What matters most on your journey is how deeply you see, how attentively you hear, how richly the encounters are felt in your heart and soul.”
I find this is easier when I am on holiday or vacation, or in some way removed from the pace and the demands, the schedules and To Do lists of everyday life.
I think the question for us Women Breadwinners is: how do we “be pilgrims” of our everyday lives?
I’m finding a hint of an answer in the quote. It’s about Presence. It’s not as much about what we are doing, or how much we are doing, but how we come to it, how we “show up” to our lives. With Presence.
