Make friends with the inner dragons

I'm amazed at how many people believe that by condemning themselves they can somehow do better. It actually doesn't work that way:

Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.

-- Rainer Maria Rilke

  1. I find this to be what I am learning from Robert Bly in his Little Book on the Human Shadow. I have just found your blog, through Gramercy Digital Diary. I will be returning!

    Thank you.
