The real home turns out

to be the center within

each life and each return

to that inner core not

only calms us, heals u

and makes us whole,

but also adds some

healing and wholeness

to the world around us.

~Michael Meade

there really is no choice is there?

inquiry for today~ how to dive deep today?

when it’s no longer hidden

Every person must live the inner life in one form or another.

Consciously or unconsciously, voluntarily or involuntarily,

the inner world will claim us and exact its dues.

If we go to that realm consciously, it is by our inner world:

our prayers, meditations, dream work, ceremonies,

and Active Imagination. If we try to ignore the inner world,

as most of us do, the unconscious will find its way into our lives

through pathology: our psychosomatic symptoms, compulsions,

depressions, and neuroses.

~Robert A. Johnson
