CHAPTER 7. “SELF” AND “THE OTHER” A JOURNEY OF MUTUAL
RECOGNITION

Graciela Susana Boruszko

Becoming…

“Wanderer, there is no road,
the road is made by walking.”

Caminante no hay camino
se hace camino al andar
.

—Antonio Machado
Proverbios y cantares XXIX

Echoing the Spanish poet Antonio Machado, it can be argued that the vocational journey follows one pathway in one direction even as the road is not always clear1 (Machado 2006, 85; translation Craige 1978, 143). What makes the journey is not the road but rather the walk, that passionate inner drive to walk and live the adventure. If life does not present itself as a definite road, why should the vocational path allude to a clear direction? Is the direction the most important component in a vocational search? Does vocation emanate from our true meaningful identity? As Al-Sadat said:

Without a vocation, man’s existence would be meaningless…(Each man) should
first recognize and be loyal to his real entity within…for it is this alone which
will enable him to belong and owe allegiance to that Entity which is greater,
vaster, and more permanent than his individual self (1978, 82).
