Lessons of El Camino

The lessons of Camino are true pearls of wisdom and gifts for the soul.

I still wonder how Saint James and the angels of the road were able to provide such an array of different lessons for each pilgrim.  Each lesson is perfect for the soul and brings relief, soothing, wisdom and increased faith.

I remember the lesson of Alice who found herself alone on the path in the woods just to discover a big man walking along and furiously mumbling to himself.  Although very tired, she started running from fear of the man, and reached her destination almost one hour sooner than planned.  She found a bed at the albergue and went out to have dinner. Upon her return she found the same big pilgrim in the bed above her own.  There was a lesson there and she was ashamed to find out that all the other pilgrims at the albergue found Mario, the big man to be funny and original.
