The journey- by Sheila Chadwick


At our August meeting, one of our Companions, a woman of both beauty and grace, read us something found amongst her papers… something that she had written down many years ago. We asked if we could transcribe it and share it here. It seems appropriate to share it once more for although our friend is no longer with us, the gifts that she shared with us remain. 

As life is more in touch with the Spirit now… as you begin to see the curves and twists of the Spiral Dance, the only reference you need is the ability to manoeuvre through the valleys of uncertainty that loom towards one in the unseen mists of repetitive uncertainty. The leap of faith is definitely needed then.

Traversing the many hills of weakness and temptation, eventually a plateau is reached from which the view is overwhelmingly in favour of Beauty of Being and the joyful acceptance of one’s inner state reflecting, like a mirror, that eternal landscape from which we draw our sustenance, life everlasting.

It is obvious, as never before, how far one has gone from that ‘State of Grace’.

In time and space we dance and twine as energies direct and mould an earthly gaze.

The past is history, the future a mystery; NOW is a gift we call the present.

  1. Only just read this. A thought-provoking piece both inspiring and timely as I pass through a period of doubt and loss of hope.
    RIP Sheila, beautiful lady. x
