40 days in a wilderness…

February 14, 2015

40days2“It’s like a jungle sometimes it makes me wonder how I keep from going under…”

Ok so we might be far from GMM’s jungle but ‘our’ world can still seem wild… And the wilderness can often be as empty, shallow, and scorching as a desert…

40 days in a desert or wilderness
What might you do?
I guess coming out of a British winter and into spring can be a tad like coming back from the edge of a wilderness and back to so-called civilisation. New starts, spring, light, warmth, chocolate, holiday… February and the festival of cleansing. The promise of longer days…
What do we choose as we latch onto life’s footholds?
What parts of culture snare us and sucker our energies?
What ambitions do we expect and what desires might absorb us?

40days1The invitation & promise of glittering treasures, powerful position, reward and self-fulfilment is ever-present.
We have a choice, but habit can become a powerful deception. Sometimes we choose not to choose.
The wilderness, a wild untamed place; our world is essentially a wild untamed place, our cultural behaviours are often wilder than mother nature’s harmonies might recommend.

40days3Perhaps taking out in our wilderness and re-evaluating some of our habits or treasures might be worthwhile.

Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also…

Where your treasures are, that’s where the essence of you springs from…

40 days in a desert or wilderness…
What might we do, next?


These are the things people gave up for Lent 2014 according to Twitter.



Lent invites us to stop, let go, open up and face our chaos…

…and then the angels came and attended to him
