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

In the Middle

Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death. Anais Nin

Have you ever been in a lecture and smugly thought you already know this stuff?  That’s where my mind was several hours ago.  And then there was this shift.  It was subtle at first.  Kind of a tweaking around the edges of where my thinking was.  Then there is this different approach to what I thought I know.  Yikes!  How’d that work?

We’re taking a lunch break now.  I will go back.  I’m curious to see what happens next.
