“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” ― Lao Tzu

We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.

A morning affirmation

inhabitude:

You know what you need to know. What you need to do. Who you really are. Don’t listen to the voices of others. You have all the wisdom necessary to meet this moment.

Don’t deny any part of who you are. Don’t setup a shadow self to hide or attack. Bring your woundedness into the light. Be vulnerable. Be uncertain. Be misunderstood. Be you.
