Traveling to a Thin Place – #Trust30

June 4

Today’s post is for the fifth day of the Domino Project’s Trust30 Challenge. Each day, a prompt will be posted that encourages you to look within and trust yourself.

Today’s prompt is from Chris Guillebeau:

If we live truly, we shall see truly. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Not everyone wants to travel the world, but most people can identify at least one place in the world they’d like to visit before they die. Where is that place for you, and what will you do to make sure you get there?

I am one of the “not everyone wants to travel the world.” Why isn’t important – it just is.


I would like to visit a “thin” place. Sedona. Iona. Anywhere where the dividing line between the holy and the ordinary is very thin. A place where the sense of the Divine is powerful, where the ordinary is not at all ordinary, and where the spiritual is closer.

For many years, I lived a very spiritual, church and Jesus-centered life.

Then I didn’t.

And I don’t.

After years of struggle and doubt and anger about it all, I now believe there is something bigger than me. And, as a part of my spiritual journey – even quest – I long to experience a place where many who have gone before me have said the veil is thin.

I want to experience what is there. I want to hear the message that might be there for me.

I want to go.

Getting there is another story. It will entail working hard and being smart with money. It will entail keeping the dream alive in my heart. And it will entail just doing it.

Just doing it.

Until next time, may you love your life today.
