You have to do it yourself and you don’t have to do it alone.

Excerpts from Letters To A Young Man In Search Of Himself
Life continually asks you to let go—grieving, forgiving, and being comfortable with feeling stuck. And it also requests that you bring forth—intending, creating, and being a force for good in the world. Believe in the person you want to become, the deep currents of your own life that you are stalking.
Everyone needs a center and an edge. Center is home, in every sense of the word. It is all your relations, everything you deeply love, all that nourishes and supports you. Home is also that little happy peaceful place inside, your inner sanctuary. Edge is the territory of development, risk, change and evolution, where deep desires drive you to a path of growth-infused uncertainty.
