I have no idea where I am going.I do not see the road ahead of me.I cannot know for certainwhere it will end.
Nor do I really know myself,and that I think I am following your willdoes not mean I am actually doing so.
But I believethe desire to please youdoes in fact please you.And I hope I have that desirein all I am doing.
I hopeI will never do anythingapart from that desire.And I know if I do thisyou will lead me by the right roadthough I may know nothing about it.
I will trust you alwaysthough I may seem to be lostand in the shadow of death.
I will not fear,for you will never leave meto face my perils alone.
- Thomas Merton
