I’ve been reading “The Dance” by Oriah Mountain Dreamer. The Prelude contains a series of questions, for example…
“What if there is no need to change, no need to try to transform yourself into someone who is more compassionate, more present, more loving or wise?”
“What if the task is simply to unfold, to become who you already are in your essential nature – gentle, compassionate and capable of living fully and passionately present?”
“What if the question is not why am I so infrequently the person I really want to be, but why do I so infrequently want to be the person I really am?”
We have a tendency to believe we have to change because of an underlying feeling that we’re not good enough. The question is, then, what if we are good enough?
What if we simply learned to develop who and what we already are?
