I've been reading a book called Buddhism Without Beliefs, by Stephen Batchelor (1997). He has this quote by Marcel Proust as an epigraph:
- We do not receive wisdom, we must discover it for ourselves, after a journey through the wilderness which no one else can make for us, which no one can spare us, for our wisdom is the point of view from which we come at last to regard the world.
My prompt is:
Have you made your journey through the wilderness? or
What wisdom arose from your unique journey through your wilderness? or
What wilderness in your life does Proust's quote inspire?
by the way, for a good time look back at #todayswritingprompt -- it's been a while, but we're back
