While ensnared by our outer directed materialistic world, we unwittingly hold the key to the door of our self made prison. We can walk out anytime we choose. We have been so long separated from our divine origins that we have forgotten what freedom feels like. In our fear of the unknown we choose to limit the potential of each new day to the familiarity of our prison surroundings. Perhaps El Camino has revealed to you the key to your own inner awakening.
Fare thee well, fellow pilgrim: As you take a well deserved rest at the end of the long road to Finisterre the question might well arise Is the journey over or just beginning?’ Whatever answer you receive will doubtless be right for you at this time. I wish you well in your search for the truth and your journey Home. 1 extend my humble blessings to a fellow pilgrim on the path and leave you with the words of J. R. R. Tolkein from The Lord of the Rings: The Road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began.
