I am re-reading John Welwood's "Journey of the Heart."
Here's a great passage:
“Path” is a term that points to the great challenge of human existence: the need to awaken, each in our own way, to the greater possibilities that life presents. The nature of a path is to lead us on a journey, and it is life’s deepest urge to move forward int his way. Whenever our lives have this sense of forward momentum, we feel an unmistakable stream of vitality flowing through us, which tells us we are on to something real.- John Welwood, Journey of the Heart, p.12
