Whatever wishes to grow within you —a curiosity, a talent, an interest —
is life seeking its expression through you. Our old desire for comfort, even happiness,
may prove an impediment. We are here a very short time.
Let us make it as luminous and as meaningful as we can.
Time to stop being afraid, and time to show up as yourself.
James Hollis, Living an Examined Life: Wisdom for the Second Half of the Journey
