112/365 - Who we Really Were (Julia Cameron)


“Most of us are not raised to actively encounter our destiny.

 We may not know that we have one. 

As children, 
we are seldom told we have a place in life 
that is uniquely ours alone. 

Instead, 
we are encouraged to believe that our life 
should somehow fulfill the expectations of others,
 that we will (or should)
 find our satisfactions 
as they have found theirs.

 Rather than being taugh to ask ourselves
 who we are, 
we are schooled to ask others. 

We are, in effect, 
trained to listen to others' versions of ourselves.

 We are brought up in our life 
as told to us by someone else!

 When we survey our lives, 
seeking to fulfill our creativity, 
we often see we had a dream
 that went glimmering 
because we believed,
 and those around us believed, 
that the dream was beyond our reach. 

Many of us would have been, 
or at least might have been, 
done, tried something, if...

If we had known who we really were.”

  - Julia Cameron
