how we prepare

We do not receive wisdom, we must discover it for ourselves,

after a journey through the wilderness which no one else can make for us,

which no one can spare us, for our wisdom is the point of view from which we come at last

to regard the world. The lives that you admire, the attitudes that seem noble to you,

have not been shaped by a paterfamilias or a schoolmaster,

they have sprung from very different beginnings,

having been influenced by evil or commonplace that prevailed round them.

They represent a struggle and a victory.

~Marcel Proust

your destiny is weaved into mine….

inquiry for today~ what is being nudged and nurtured?

precious knowing

Whatever wishes to grow within you—a curiosity, a talent, an interest—

is life seeking its expression through you. Our old desire for comfort, even happiness,

may prove an impediment. We are here a very short time.

Let us make it as luminous and as meaningful as we can.

Time to stop being afraid, and time to show up as yourself.

~James Hollis
