“When a woman in a certain African tribe knows she is pregnant, she goes out into the wilderness with a few friends and together they pray and meditate until they hear the song of the child.

Inner Journey:

FREE TO CHOOSE

“Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility.”
— Sigmund Freud
In his book Nobody’s Victim, Christopher J. McCullough explains, “In order to live your freedom, you must first accept reality. ‘These are the choices, and given those choices, which do I choose?’ Whether the option you select is pleasant or painful does not alter the fact that, given reality, this is your preference.
“To live your freedom, it is helpful to stop and ask yourself, ‘Why am I doing this?’ and then notice whether, given the options, you are choosing what you really want, or whether you want to choose something else…. Sometimes the exercise of freedom involves naming your poison — all choices may lead to outcomes that are in some way painful. But the real pain is that of feeling powerless — denying your freedom.”
“Freedom is man’s capacity to take a hand in his own development. It is our capacity to mold ourselves.”– Dr. Rollo May

Scripture

“There is something nearer to us than Scriptures, to wit, the Word in the heart from which all Scriptures come.”

-William Penn (1644-1718)

All scriptures, no matter which religions use them, originated somewhere, and were written by someone, or by many people who were compelled to put those exact words down on paper. The remarkable thing is that they have stood the test of time. Because Truth is Truth, it doesn’t change. And what resonated in the heart way back when, still resonates in our hearts when we read the words today.

-Lissa Coffey

Be organized, stick to your personal routine, and don’t gloss over any steps if you want to get the results you have in mind. This could be a day better for practice than for performance. Do your best, be forgiving of yourself about any minor slip-ups, and have no regrets. You know what you’re already good at, so focus on that and glide through the day.
