She wants to live for once. But doesnâ??t know quite what that means. Wonders if she has ever done it. If she ever will. ~ Alice walker~
Most of us would like to live life fully. Yet when it comes to putting those words into practice, we are not quite sure how. We wonder if we know what living life fully really means, or if we have ever known.
Our temptation is to rush out and stick up on â??how toâ?? books. If we can just find the right book, we will know what to do. We have read enough so that we are pretty good at following directions. Or we start going to lectures and workshops. We try meditation, drumming, chanting, special diets special exercises, and special therapies. Always looking outside ourselves for the formula and answers.
At some point we realize that in spite of how good all these approaches are, we have to come back to the realization that only we know how to live our lives fully. We can accept guideposts, and ultimately, living our lives is up to us.
EVEN IF we have never done it, the knowledge of how to live our lives fully lies deep within us.
