“Authentic and lasting healing does not come prepackaged as sweet and syrupy wisdom to spoon-fed to lost souls, nor does it aim to fix what we perceive as broken. True healing is born of both awareness and integration- nothing more and nothing less. True healing is an eternal, often cyclical process through which we discover the roots of our unique passions and wounds, framing them not as, respectively positive and negative but, rather as interconnected gifts that, when brought out of the cavernous depths where we buried them during childhood, cast a clear gleam on precisely whey we are here.” Danielle Dulsky

There is something about the tone, the lull, of this style of writing that reminds me of Tom Robbins’ literature. A window deep within my cranium is opening slowly and connecting the dots. I think the sound is that of the primal feminine, dancing with the linear language. Shouting out and making itself known. It is like a rebirthing of knowledge that has existed for all of time but has been hidden away in the Earth and is now transitioning out into the world, pushed into carnate form. I have discussed the concepts of healing for a very long time. I have watched the clinical manifestation and the way the Western world conquers health. I realize now that healing is even more ephemeral then I thought, it is a breeze that blows and a web that weaves itself, the tendrils reach into everything and we will never know the entire story. I do not even think it is about the whole picture, it may be about a small snapshot of time. Are you fully alive right now? Do you respect yourself and your actions? A crucial line of questioning, to answer honestly. It is not really about the story, it may just be about the essence.
