October 10--That Place Inside

Inside myself is a place where I live all alone and that's where you renew your springs that never dry up.  --Pearl S. Buck

    Each of us is a great mystery. Even those of us who have spent years in self-examination and learning don't fully know all that we are, and certainly we cannot fully know another being. There is a presence within each of us that is both universal and magnificently unique. That presence is the spring that never dries up.
    Because we all have our shadows, it can be scary to go into that "all alone" place. Edwene Gaines, outstanding spiritual mentor, describes it: "We all have done things we wouldn't want to tell our grandmothers." But if we can hold onto the idea that this presence is love and only love, that "all alone" place becomes a source of infinite wellness on every level. We come into this earthly life with this presence and it never leaves us. 
    Enjoying the mystery,
