they never told you how

We all believe in something: self, non-self, an omnipotent creator, karma, science, reality, emptiness, dragons, elves. . . . When we see that belief gives color to every stratum of our experience of reality, we can embrace others as kindred believers, regardless of the shades we tend to favor.
~Pamela Gayle White

who will you be when you step into your own? your own what?

inquiry for today~  lengthen your story to include a subtle ending and then another lengthening into possibility……

if not courage, what then?

It is always hard to believe that the courageous step is so close to us, that it is closer than we ever could imagine, that in fact, we already know what it is, and that the step is simpler, more radical than we had thought: which is why we so often prefer to live in an almost world, why we prefer the story to be more elaborate, our identities to be safely clouded by fear, why we want the horizon to remain always in the distance, the promise never fully and simply made, the essay longer than it needs to be and the answer safely in the realm of impossibility.
