#magic from Robin Williams
It’s the oddities, the off centered-ness, the so-called imperfections, the times we have failed and learned, the things we have lost, the details that so often we think are messy and not pretty…that is the madness and the mystique of who we each are. Whatever makes you different and off center, go with it.
We try too hard to fit a mold that we have created based on society’s collage of perfection. What if, instead of thinking inside the box, you stepped out, turned around and looked in. Jes Senn, FF Ambassador, sent me this quote today that sums it up:
“It take courage – this is often called the path of the spiritual warrior-to endure the sharp pains of self-discovery rather than choose to take the dull pain of unconsciousness that would last the rest of our lives. I laugh whenever anyone suggests that A Course in Miracles has us taking an easy way out. It’s a lot of things, but it’s not easy. We have to look the ego straight in the eye before we have the power to relinquish it.” From A Return to Love
