Out there in the world, we tend to stick with what’s comfortable.
We usually stay on the well-trodden path or follow the well-signposted trail. The same goes for how we navigate our “self”. We avoid the bits of ourselves that make us uncomfortable.
But when we stick with comfortable habits and behaviours, responses and situations, we don’t grow. We close ourselves off to opportunities to develop. To discover our potential. To find out more about ourselves.
Who we really are in our hearts is what Joseph Campbell refers to as “our sacred space”. He likens it to a cave we’re afraid to enter, but which holds exactly what we’re looking for … if we’re brave enough to step into the unknown.
