If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.-—Joseph Campbell

The Geniune Within

Learn to be quiet enough to hear the genuine within yourself so that you can hear it in others.   Marian Wright Edelman

How do I know what I want?  What am I afraid of?  What is going on inside of me?  What could I do next?  I spend time daily in writing and sitting meditation listening for answers.  And the answers aren’t always reassuring.  In fact often they can be things I’m not real proud of–that shadow side of me.  Did I really want these answers?  Is this why I will launch into busy mode rather than sit still through the messy part?

Isn’t this human struggle what others hear too?  Couldn’t this experience make us more compassionate?

    Be proud of your shadow too. Answers are usually hidden there.
