The Longest Journey / Sept. 3 (Tuesday) is the First Day of Fall Semester

The Longest Journey

The longest journey is from the head to the Heart.
It is a road not taken by many.
But on this beautiful pathway,
I found my way home.

In a recent broadcast Ravi Zacharias asked,
“Can you talk about education
without looking into the human heart?”
And my thought was
no,
it is impossible to even think of educating a child
without looking into the Heart of that child.
A child may never remember what you said,
but he will always remember how you made him feel.
Always.

How I clearly remember my Mother, Marie,
when as a young child,
I discovered she had completed the longest journey.
That was when I came to know Love profound
– the kind of Love one finds
only in the compassion expressed by Jesus.
Yes,
I discovered the Love of God
in my Mother.

By the time she had completed her brief sojourn in Life, she had shared with me the most precious gift of all, more precious than life itself. It was a Love so profound – the kind of Love one discovers only in the sanctity of forgiveness and in the light of hope, when all seems lost – such Love as is conveyed in the compassionate words found in the New Testament.

It was Love that not only never dies,
but opens up the heart and blossoms
like a flower in the wind
with each new dawn.
This kind of love dwells deep within your Heart and overflows out into the world around you and becomes a Blessing to everyone you meet.

You have witnessed such Love, in the smiles and in the laughter that surround your child, as your Heart embraces the precious moments you share. And your child has witnessed the same in the unconditional Love you have given.

It is now my belief that an infinite journey is possible. This journey is longer than we can imagine and it never ends. The longest journey is not from your head to your Heart, it is through your precious Heart.

Such a path leads to everyone, everywhere,
beyond our time and place.
It leads us to the destiny of all those who will live beyond.
For that is the nature of Love that lives within each one of us.
Love, I have discovered, is ultimately what we live for.
Love is what we are.
Love is all we leave behind that truly matters.
And Love profound is
Eternal.

Let Love guide your Life
and become your Northern Star.
Let it point the way.
It is
the pathway Home.

Goodnight.
