Brilliance exists in journeys, any journey that frees your spirit.  The following trailer is from the incredible movie: The Way Back (2010) directed by Peter Weir.


When I watched this movie I thought about the journeys people take:

  • Underground Railroad Journey
  • Weight Loss Journey
  • Spiritual Understanding Journey
  • Fertility or Adoptive Journey to Motherhood
  • Academic professlional Journey
  • Seeking/Finding family Journey

Whether you're seeking the love of your life, to abolish slavery, to cure cancer, friendship, a new home, financial security... journeys always symbolize difficulties, work, or obstacles to a destination. The destinations, if you really think about it, are quite simply: Freedom! 

  • Freedom from slavery
  • Freedom from dis-ease
  • Freedom from poverty
  • Freedom from loneliness

All journeys lead to freedom and the sooner you understand this most important reality, the sooner you'll see the Brilliance in the hard work you'll face and why it is worth so much.  What price Freedom?  Less TV, No cake for a month, exercise on a regular basis, monitoring your ovulatory cycle, etc., it all is worth it.  What journey are you or do you need to take?  Do you think it is any less difficult than the journey depicted in the trailer above?  If the journey is not difficult, maybe it is not actually a journey.  Maybe it is merely a day dream that you don't really care about.  All journeys require sacrifice, but if the freedom is worth it to you, the sacrifices will be gladly relinquished. Join me on Christmas Eve when one of the most well-known spiritual journeys took place with some wise men of Olde.
