šrulesš for a pilgrimage

Hi --

As I was having a very down couple of days while I was walking, I noticed that posted on the walls in the albergues was this list of šrulesš for the pilgrim making a pilgrimage in Spanish.

Basically it said your Camino is the way you make, and the only way is your way. Go at your own pace. Do what you need to do. etc...

IŽve been looking on line for a copy of these and canŽt find it. Can someone post a link to this, or maybe have a photo of the page you can send along?

Thanks, I truly appreciate your help,

Maybe these are the words?

"A pilgrim does not demand, a pilgrim is grateful...
He leaves what he can, and takes only that which he needs....
If you conform with the bare essentials, then what you don't really need seems a luxury...
If you keep stopping, then your progress is slow ..
and if you go quickly, you miss what is best ...
The sun will tell you the time to get up, light your way, so enjoy his company....
A good pilgrim is he who listens and hears the stones talk...
A roof to sleep under, a puddle to wash in, bread to eat, a wine to drink
and a Camino to walk.... If you get blisters ... bless them ....
and perhaps you won't get anything worse..."

Thanks, those are the words from one that I saw, but IŽm thinking of one that goes more into what the Camino and the Way is about.
It says something like you make your own way, there is no right way, your way is the only way and your Camino is your own way...
I wish I could remember more of it.
