Women Who Run With The Wolves.

“Be wild; that is how to clear the river. The river does not flow in polluted, we manage that. The river does not dry up, we block it. If we want to allow it its freedom, we have to allow our ideational lives to be let loose, to stream, letting anything come, initially censoring nothing. That is creative life. It is made up of divine paradox. To create one must be willing to be stone stupid, to sit upon a throne on top of a jackass and spill rubies from one’s mouth. Then the river will flow, then we can stand in the stream of it raining down.

“The way to maintain one’s connection to the wild is to ask yourself what it is that you want. This is the sorting of the seed from the dirt. One of the most important discriminations we can make in this matter is the difference between things that beckon to us and things that call from our souls. Nowhere can this be seen more clearly than in the choice of mates and lovers. A lover cannot be chosen a la smorgasbord. A lover has to be chosen from soul-craving. To choose just because something mouthwatering stands before you will never satisfy the hunger of the soul-self. And that is what the intuition is for; it is the direct messenger of the soul.” – Clarissa Pinkola Estés, from Women Who Run With The Wolves

Trust In The Fall.

Now.

Now is the time to dive into your galaxy of uncertainty and the unknown, with your head clear and your heart bright. There is no room for hesitation, for that millisecond of fear could cost you all the dreams you deserve.

“We were born fully equipped to break free of past confining conditions that no longer serve us. And it is our destiny to do so. That inner impulse, that yearning to explore beyond the boundaries of our daily life permeates every living thing, and its voice perpetually whispers in our winner ear, ‘Grow, grow, grow…’ But, there is another voice that often speaks much louder, the voice of fear. It shouts, ‘No, no, no…Stay right where you are. While you may not like it, you risk nothing by staying put.’ But, unfortunately, that is the big lie. There is great risk in resisting the divine urge to grow.”

– Dennis Merrit Jones, from The Art of Uncertainty
