call it a ritual

~ this is our 'secular' world~

It would be very nice for nervous types like me if things were black-and-white, and you could tell where one thing ended and the next thing began, but as Einstein taught us, everything in the future and the past is right here now. There’s always something ending and something beginning. Yet in the very center is the truth of your spiritual identity: is you.

Beautiful essay by Anne Lamott on the life’s work of becoming who you are.

Couple with Florence King on how to find yourself, then revisit Lamott’s timeless meditations on why perfectionism kills creativity and how we keep ourselves small by people-pleasing.
