Everything in life became REALLY difficult and then MAGICALLY more simple once I realized that everything I'd grown up to believe in was a lie. From the most outrageous cultural myths to the simplest things like family...it's safer to create comfortable fantasy worlds to nest in and peer out into the "outside" world picking and choosing what we feel safe decorating our prison walls with. "If you do not bring forth that that is within you...what you do not bring forth will destroy you" I'm learning that's its easier to express ALL parts of myself than to shape myself into what I *think* other want. The universe is made of language...we sing it into being. Sing while ye may!
