She must learn again to speak
starting with I
starting with We
starting as the infant does
with her own true hunger
and pleasure
and rage.

-- Marge Piercy

A Message From God in Real Life


1. Get the hell out of the way.

2. Honor the mystery. (There’s a reason the door doesn’t have a window.  If it did, every one of us would be pressed up against the glass, noses smashed, trying to make sense of the little we can see.)

3. Trust the process.

And most important

4. Be ready to walk through (sideways, if necessary) the minute you see the door open.
