Words of Wisdom: John O'Donohue

“Your soul knows the geography of your destiny. Your soul alone has the map of your future, therefore you can trust this indirect, oblique side of yourself. If you do, it will take you where you need to go, but more important it will teach you a kindness of rhythm in your journey.” 
― John O'Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom


  1. yes ... I read this during December, during the darkening of the days. And this quote ... this understanding that I can trust the soul because she has the map. She already knows. It is quiet freedom from the worry, from the angst, from the frazzled frantic feelings.

    and of course, I read it than and understood it then. and I forgot.

    thank you for the reminder.

    1. I forget so much... some of these books I think should be on an annual rotation! :)

  2. Such a wonderful quote. I am copying it down. xx
