Words of Courage

The Real Work

It may be that when we no longer know what to do
we have come to our real work,
 

and that when we no longer know which way to go
we have come to our real journey.
 

The mind that is not baffled is not employed. 

The impeded stream is the one that sings.

—Wendell Berry in Collected Poems

  

 

 

 Are you in a place where you don’t know what to do or which way to go? Maybe even feeling a little baffled? What song do you hear about your real work? Your real journey?

This is the first of our monthly offering of Words of Courage. It is our hope that the words that you read and the questions you consider will en-courage you to engage fully in your work in the world.

  

These Words of Courage were contributed by Ann Faulkner, a CRNT Facilitator.

    Thanks, Ann,
    “A mind that is not baffled is not employed.” What a wonderful thought to start a Friday morning after a hectic week!
