Deborah, this whole piece is so great, and this idea of the journey becoming the answer has been so central to my personal narrative the past few years.
I don't typically share stories in the comments but this is precisely what I've tried to wrestle with in this piece on the paradox of belief in a higher power (an interpretation of this theme in The Wizard of Oz) https://medium.com/swlh/the-paradox-of-belief-in-a-higher-power-fa09d5c4e98
And then again in this fiction piece (hopefully soon to become a children's book): https://medium.com/the-mad-river/duck-and-the-bend-in-the-river-64fed8428387
I think they both fit beautifully well with what you are expressing here about deep intent while letting go. And about the journey becoming the answer. Thank you!
