Shadowing

During a longer pilgrimage you will encounter a time of weariness. This time is what I call shadowing. It is a time when things that shone brightly in your mind move slowly into the shadows. Don't fight nor flee this time. Sit it out. The way you thought your pilgrimage would turn out is meeting the reality of the road-life. Hold things lightly and avoid making big decisions during this time.

Light will return, and you shall burn brighter.
