When In Doubt

The shadow contains a wealth of knowledge about ourselves. As writers, we're seeking to live without self-deception or self-delusion. We're seeking a way through the mysteries of the world. We're seeking to make meaning from the chaos we see all around us. Don't be afraid of or oppose that which is within your own flesh. Awareness allows you to work with it without causing harm to yourself or others. Awareness opens; fear closes. When in doubt, choose opening.

- Laraine Herring (Writing Begins With The Breath)
