something to consider

i have been losing myself in mark nepo’s writing lately.
i’m now engrossed in his book, ‘seven thousand ways to listen.’

he said something in there that i thought was really worth all of us
thinking about. so i thought i’d share –

‘Facing our inner divisions is the first step to knowing where we need
to rejoin ourselves. You cannot set bone until you know where it is
broken, and you cannot set upon the journey of individuation – of
becoming a whole person – until you know where and how you are
divided.’

i love the ‘divided’ word.
not broken.
divided.

i really love that choice of words.

and i love the thought.
i couldn’t answer you where i thought my inner divisions are right now.
and i think that’s one reason i love this.
it’s really something to chew on and consider.

thought some others might enjoy it as well…….
