Wrestling with the angel who holds the key to our brilliance is often more challenging than embracing the critic. It involves three central themes that relate directly to the intimacy and the spirituality of the creative process: discovering how our shadow blocks our creativity, experiencing the gift of great and courageous creativity, and giving this creativity a sacred place in our lives. By wrestling with the angel, we understand how our own woundedness is a step in our journey to wholeness……Janet Hagberg
round & round we move in our lives….circling our essence…..will we reach that place where prayer meets fear head on?
What struck me in therapy was the hollowness in most self-understanding. Some ways of knowing do not require understanding. Being familiar with yourself is a form of knowledge, and it, too, doesn’t require understanding. We have faith that in the dimness of our ignorance we have the opportunity to give ourselves more fully to our reality. Unconditional love means that we don’t love on the condition that we understand. Self-understanding is not as important as living from the soul……Thomas Moore
allowing life to happen is the ultimate freedom, but more importantly, it is the deepest way of knowing……this may be one of the best kept secrets we hide from ourselves….our creative life moves like water when we surrender…..
Only the shallow know themselves.
To fear is one thing.
To let fear grab you by the tail
and swing you around
