When “why” is the question we are asking at 3am and life is at a crossroads it would be nice if someone would come to us with a sign from Spirit. It would be so nice to have that kind of certainty about destiny and not just live in the tides of fate. It would be comforting to know what’s expected of us, why we are here and what that calls us to do.
It is a mystery, and we are called to be present with it. We are called to bring what we are best able to bring to our life. We are called to remember.
As an expedition of the heart, Caravan Conversations, based on the book Caravan of Remembering by Daniel Goodenough, offers a way to ‘remember’ a deeper place inside that can then bloom in your life.There is a value in even the smallest gesture when our hearts remember. It does make a difference. Welcome to the Caravan of Remembering.

    What is the deep ache in your heart?

    What is the deep ache in your heart?

    Welcome to week four. In this excerpt, David describes how Caravan moved, in near silence, a community deep in contemplation. Nearly everyone walking that night appeared to have something weighing on his or her heart - a sea of pilgrims moving together, more inwardly focused than anything else.
    The collective mood of reflection moved David to ask "what the deep ache in my heart meant for my place in all of this?".

    What do you know about your 'essential nature'?

    What do you know about your 'essential nature'?

    Welcome to week six. In the following excerpt from The Caravan of Remembering, David listens as Savitri and a young girl have a conversation about Right Livelihood in Buddhism and how it relates to our essential nature.
    Excerpt:
    "Right livelihood calls us to be in service to something larger than ourselves.The Eightfold path also calls for the liberation of all sentient beings. I feel that this path also reminds that to be here at all is a great opportunity. Wouldn't that make it important to honor our reason for being here?"
    Watching her as she talked, Savitri replied to her, "Yes, the Buddha is quoted as saying, 'Your work is to find your work and give all of yourself to it.' When the Buddha says this, what is he saying? Is he asking us to find something or anything that we can do and give all of our self to? Is he saying we should attune to the nature of our mind stream, or to the essential nature that is each of us and give all of our self to that?
    There is an essential nature that is the unique nature of your Self. The way this essential nature meets the world will be the way you can be of service to all sentient beings. This essential nature holds the gift of your call."
