walk your path…

Source: walk your path…

The quote included in the post involves walking our path in a responsible and responsive way. We walk with others. Others walk with us whether it is beside us, behind us, or in front of us. They walk their path, as we, in turn, walk our path.

The etymology of the word truth involves faithfulness to someone or something, beginning with ourselves as we look inward and search for our particular truth. In this sense, truth is unique to each person, but there is  fidelity and faithfulness that serves as a pledge or covenant to other things and people we encounter.

When we walk our path, it is our path, but we find ourselves in the company of others and things. The world and its beings lead us, constrain us and guide, as we lead, constrain, and guide them. We each share our particular truth with thhe world and others in and through these relationships. It is essential to be mindful and attentive to those relationships as we discover our particular truth.

My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.

  1. We learn so much along our path if we are wiling to watch, listen and feel with our heart .My truth seems to change from time to time as new opportunities appear on my path.There are always lessons to be learned.

  2. “…beginning with ourselves …” Key.

    I’ve noted your visits to ECR of late, and was very happy to see you back. I also just found out why I haven’t been getting notices of your posts, which is true of a lot of the blogs I follow. Apparently, when WP made some of their changes, the notifications didn’t get transferred over, so, I’ve been going back to turn them on when I find them…. and, I’m glad to be able to come back, as I’ve always enjoyed your brand of thought….

    I’ll be back….

    Nice post by the way… it rather echoes the basic admonition from Epictetus, to wit: “The key to happiness is the clear understanding of one principle. Some things are in your control. And some things are not.”

    See ya.
