MBL Minute: Shattering The Puzzle And Becoming Self Possessed


Episode Notes


We have to take the puzzle of our life apart before we can put it back together again the way we were meant to be in the world.  The motivation it takes to do the emotional labor required to make this happen will come from either one of two places, either our pain or our passion.  As our life comes together so will our world.


Being self-possessed is a heroic way of living.  It means we are not looking to the world to tell us who we are.  We do not need external validation and that we are comfortable in our own skin.  The armor of being self-possessed enables us to stand back from the world and view it more objectively.  This leads to greater kindness, generosity and bravery toward others.
