Quotes from Magical Journey. An Apprenticeship in Contentment.

Can’t help but share some of my favourite quotes from the book Magical Journey. An Apprenticeship in Contentment by Katrina Kenison

“It’s not for me to judge the gifts I have to offer the world, but it is up to me to summon the courage to offer them.”

“What matters most is not the size or scope of the work we do, but the intention behind it, the love that fuels it, the satisfaction of doing it.”

“Now I see that the journey was never meant to lead to some new and improved version of me; that it has always been about coming home to who I already am.  It is about learning to dance along the edge between what I know and all that is unknowable…learning how to be at ease in the shadows of uncertainty and trusting the path to reveal itself.”

“As I loosen my grip on the past, as I keep taking one small step after another in the direction I want to go, I discover I’m being supported and guided after all, and that as soon as I’m willing to embrace change, something or someone comes along and shows me how.  Magic wasn’t something I had to go in search of; it was here within me, all the time. When hearts are open, when love is flowing, magic happens.”

“It is what we humans do, when we’re being our best selves:  We show up for one another, and we ask: “How can I be helpful here?”

“All I really needed to do was focus on who I wanted to be.”
