The Journey

The Journey, Mary Oliver
One day you finally knew what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you kept shouting their bad
advice—though the whole house began to tremble and
you felt the old tug at your ankles.
“Mend my life!” each voice cried. But you didn’t stop.
You knew what you had to do, though the wind pried
with its stiff fingers at the very foundations –
though their melancholy was terrible.
It was already late enough and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen branches and stones.
But little by little, as you left their voices behind,
the stars began to burn through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice which you slowly recognized
as your own, that kept you company as you strode deeper
and deeper into the world,
determined to do the only thing you could do –
determined to save the only life you could save.

The Intuitive Mind

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift, and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a world that honors the servant, but has forgotten the gift.” Albert Einstein

The Inner Critic

“The inner critic conspires to protect us from feeling shame, insecurity, and inadequacy. In fact, much of our busyness can be traced back to the constant frenetic energy we anxiously expend to keep ourselves from feeling shame.” Wholeheartedness, Chuck DeGroat
Tomorrow, October 2nd, at 11 am, we will be discussing the inner critic and how it hampers our search for wholeheartedness.
