Just as anyone who listens to the muse will hear, you can write out of your own intention or out of inspiration. There is such a thing. It comes up and talks. And those who have heard deeply the rhythms and hymns of the gods, the words of the gods, can recite those hymns in such a way that the gods will be attracted.

~Joseph Campbell

Reclaiming the authentic self and developing character are essential tasks in the second half of life. Congruence within our nature fosters authenticity. Acting with integrity is the practice that brings us into alignment and congruence. People who have character and are honest say what they mean, do what they say, and way what’s so when it’s so. Practice saying only what you mean, doing everything you say you’ll do, and saying what’s so as soon as you know it to be so. Write down what you discover about he integrity of your words, actions, and timing, and in which of these you find yourself consistently challenged or falling short. This practice will strengthen courage and truth-telling, and will reduce misunderstanding and conflict in your life.    ~Angeles Arrien
