74 On Seeing Clearly --- The Fantasy and the Reality
EXPERIENCE has taught us that deep inside each of us is a part of us that wants everything right now and a place for it to hide—something like Peter Pan and Never Never Land. In combination, this place in us and that part of us are very insatiable and very demanding. Some call it the inner child, but I have to wonder at that. I believe this to be a misnomer because it seems more complex than that. I have come to believe that this is the soul wearing the cloak of the inner child, hiding from the world it has been born into.
This place seems to be a shadowy land of the phases of who and what we were meant to be and what we are to become hopefully; who we were last time around, and who we are right now, all rolled into one.
It is like a staging area for life, and the soul is hiding there, too afraid to come out into the life it was supposed to be born into.
Facing Your Destiny Is A Difficult Business,
Yet It Seems To Be The Only Business At Hand
If You Really Get Honest And Look.
