The Journey

Photo by Manish Doshi

The journey itself doesn’t see our earthly age. It is a joy to arrive when we arrive and a delight to meet your own tribe on the same path.”

This blog platform has been a significant way of meeting and interacting with utmost amazing beautiful people who have created an indelible impact on my life journey from one day to another. They are generous hearts and souls delivering divine messages and reminders as if guide posts on the path, through their work and exchange of comment conversations, often year after year. I hope to find the ability and inspiration to share about each one who has been a contribution to me. You know who you are. An humble bow of gratitude to you.

Today I want to share about one such beautiful blogger friend, Tamara Kulish.

The quote in the above image came as a part of our conversation on one of her blog post “Remind yourself that you cannot fail at being yourself” This post made me thoughtful and I responded with saying:

“Do what you want and what you enjoy – this seemed like the most revolutionary advice I gave myself at one time I remember. The sense of self-worth when not independent of others’ expectations, we lose our sense of Being and keep choosing to do things to satisfy some external standards. Your post is one perfect statement after another.”

Dear Tamara responded to the above by saying:

“We have both learned the value of doing this in our lives, you earlier in life than I did, but it’s wonderful when anyone does, whether earlier or later! There’s really no better time than now, for anyone contemplating this in their own life! It’s a truly liberating mind set!”

My heart all joyful with resonance and as if with a nod to her, I responded :

The journey itself doesn’t see our earthly age. It is a joy to arrive when we arrive and a delight to meet your own tribe on the same path.”

Tamara then generously shone her bright light on this statement of mine and made it into a quote in this post: Your soul is the place within you that is timeless, ageless, and eternal She gifted my words back to me, to take this beautiful and powerful form, as you see in the quote image at the top. I hope you enjoyed and found value in our interaction that I chose to share, in similar fashion of her post.

Please visit Tamara Kulish to know of her expansive work of books and journals published in the area of self-discovery, personal development, finding happiness and fulfillment. Her blog posts are a treasure, each one, with her honest authentic sharing and inspiring perspectives.

      • I think my heart just grew three sizes upon hearing your words! I too feel truly blessed to connect with a kindred spirit, especially during these difficult times when fear rules the hearts of so many! It is a blessing to be able to be understood by one who likewise is shining lights into darkened areas and helping people to reclaim their strong inner foundations and be strengthened to face another day!

  6. it’s such a wondrous blessing when others inspire and trigger insights in us … we already know it but somehow our interaction makes us verbalise it! I really love your quote and how Tamara rephrased it!

    And a delightful idea to pay tribute to those who have supported you on the path 🙂

  7. I appreciate your discussion on many levels. I arrived ‘late’ but searching and aware. It is a gift when you meet your tribe. I find it interesting, that our ‘tribe’ is often not who we thought it would be, and more than we could have hoped for.

  10. A beautiful conversation between bloggers makes us grow unintentionally, almost by accident. But it is the most wonderful accidental learning and growing.

    Our wordpress community is great. I recently started following Tamara her post resonate with me.

    And I just LOVE this “The journey itself doesn’t see our earthly age. It is a joy to arrive when we arrive and a delight to meet your own tribe on the same path.” it is soooo deep

    • Universe always answers when we ask, I had profound experience of that just today myself. So I bow with you in gratitude and I am so happy to be the medium of solution for you. Dear Deepika thank you very much for sharing with me this instance of perfect timing.

  14. Time and age are so fascinating, being objective and subjective at the same time. We’re all one, yet we’re many. So different, yet the same. You’re such a welcoming, inspiring presence on WP, Pragalbha. Joy and compassion emanate from every one of your posts. The messages you convey are timeless and universal.
