I was seventeen years old when I first started out on my own. I didn’t have a car, a job, money, or a home. Well, I take that back—I might have had twenty or thirty dollars and a duffel bag of clothes, which I threw over my shoulder. I then caught the train for New York City.
When you’re young, it’s easy to dream big and be filled with hope and courage. I had no idea what the big, wide world held for me. How was I to make the right decisions in such a vast and confusing place? Would I have the courage and confidence to make it on my own?
So many questions went through my mind. How could I live without doubt, worry, fear, or anxiety? How was I going to quell my runaway mind? Could I find goodness and compassion amid violence and cruelty? Would I be able to live a rich and satisfying life, free from complications? What is the meaning of life? Does it even have one? Who or what am I? These were the questions that raged in my mind and heart back then.
Well, the magic of time’s illusion has played its trick as the years have fled by. Finally I’ve found my voice: the voice to express the inexpressible, the essence of the spiritual journey that leads one home to the heart. It’s why I’ve written Finding Heart: How to Live with Courage in a Confusing World.
If I only had these insights when I was seventeen, I would have realized the answers were never missing. They had been there all along waiting to be discovered.
