The "Gift of Getting Lost" reminds us that people who find and live into their calling in life rarely do so without getting lost first. Our journey through life is never a straight one. The path zigzags. And at each point where our journey needs to make a turn, we start to feel increasingly lost. This feeling of being lost prompts us to pay more attention to the signals that the Holy Spirits is sending us. Sometimes these signals may seem supernatural in experience, but more often they will come in subtle ways; through gut hunches, intuitions, moments of silence, shifts in awareness, multiple coincidences, even promptings from friends that we disregard. We will catch onto these signals...provided that we're paying attention. Excerpts from "Gifts of the Dark Wood" by Eric Elnes.
