… Because imagining other possibilities for our liveswisdom-key-pic would remind us of the painful gap between who we most truly are and the role we play in the so-called real world. As we become more obsessed with succeeding or, at least, surviving in that world- we lose touch with our souls and disappear into our roles.        – Parker Palmer, A Hidden Wholeness

Creator and lover of my soul,

Draw me out of myself, out of my fear, out of my pretending… and into you alone.
