To be in a position where you can do what you truly love, when you wish, and how;
where you can be the being you intuit yourself to be, and long to express;
where clarity and contentment are unwavering states of mind
– isn’t this the core longing of every human being?
Isn’t this what most people would call freedom?
Yet who will pay the price? The utter, total relinquishment of everything they think about themselves and their life – all those precious stories, all those achievements and injustices, all those dreams of a glorious future …
She-who-scribbles wouldn’t, couldn’t. She was heavily invested in her self-construct. But the longing was so intense that Life took the matter into ITs own hands and set up a scenario that by-passed gentle relinquishment. IT simply put her in circumstances where everything was wiped out without her having any choice in the matter.
What unspeakable Grace!

As Confucius said, by three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflexion, which is the noblest; second, by imitation, which is the easiest; and third, by experience, which is the bitterest. A.M.
Thank you dear AM! I would add … and fourth, by Grace, which is unexpected, uninvited and unavoidable.
