“Saying we must grant ourselves permission to live our own lives may sound pretty self-evident, but have a look at our formative training and consider how much of what we have been taught makes this difficult.” – Oriah Mountain Dreamer
Stumbled across this today while I was updating my tumblr page. It is Oriah Mountain Dreamers blog. Anyone who knows me well knows I love, live, well, I AM her poem The Invitation. Finding her blog seemed rather, well, serendipitous, considering what I am going through.
This part of a post hit me.
“I had seen- been taught to see- my childhood as relatively free from any serious wounding and had used my ability to cope with life as evidence that this mythology was factually true.” – Permission to Heal, Oriah Mountain Dreamer
If this excerpt, or her poem, touches you, you might like her blog. I have been reading it all day. I have to take it in small doses. It hits me THERE.
