The secret of life is a fiction of our own making, a story that has to be told by each individual for themselves and no other.
We each have the burden, the privilege, the blessing, the responsibility to create our own way in the world, to write with our lives the great mystery of existence.
It’s not “out there”; nobody has it for you; nobody else is the keeper of what you are here to know but you.
You alone hold the secret for yourself. It is within you, and you alone get to make it up and make it real.
Start by wondering and wandering within to uncover the truth of who you are and why you are.
Outside teachers may come to you, but only as reminders of the wisdom that is already encoded in your bones and scrawled on the walls of your heart… that is even now being whispered by you, as your thoughts and through your dreams. Listen close.
And if you’re not sure you’re hearing right, the safest bet is to just tell the story that you would most love to hear.
