I had a conversation with my old friend liz, who’s a catholic worker and a kindred spirit. I was catching her up on where my life was headed, and how I was considering the next step into a constantly unfolding future. At one point in the conversation she said, “Wow,” — she actually says wow — “this all sounds like it’s coming from a place of deep freedom.” I remembered that “deep freedom” was one of the things we had been talking about: making decisions from a non-compulsed center. What she made me aware of is that people who know you well can sense where your energy is emerging from. That’s why it’s finding OUR way, not finding MY way. There really is no substitute for good friends and good counsel. Podcast tomorrow night.
