Once we have begun to heal from the social conditioning that has diverted us from the inner reality we know most intimately and denied the validity of our instinctual knowledge, we may find ourselves asking:
“What stands between me and a life driven and directed by my deepest passion?”
The question may become another diversion, a detour into therapies and spiritual practices, an incitement to making plans and deferring joy—analysis substituting for action.
There may arrive the right moment for a leap of faith, when we ignore all the valid and well-reasoned arguments to the contrary and burst forth in pursuit of our passion.
