"When you begin to think outside the box, you often become some other "leaders" lousy follower. That usually costs something" (Andy Rayner)

"Our guardian angels are bored." (Mike Foster)

It's where I feel I'm at these days. “In the second half of life, it is good just to be a part of the general dance. We do not have to stand out, make defining moves, or be better than anyone else on the dance floor. Life is more participatory than assertive, and there is no need for strong or further self-definition” (Falling Upward. Richard Rohr.120).

Thorny Beliefs

"Jesus said you must deny yourself to embrace Truth. This is letting go of your insistence that the spiritual path be a certain way, and that it uphold your comfort and preferences. The Truth will challenge your most deeply held ideas. You must set aside all the things you think you know, and be willing to start from a place of not knowing. Count on this being thorny. You are vested in what you know, and have built your life around your beliefs."
(Jim Palmer. Notes From Over The Edge)
