“I thought about one
of my favorite Sufi poems,
which says that God long ago
drew a circle in the sand
exactly around the spot
where you are standing
right now.
I was never not coming here.
This was never not going to happen.”

” We create words to define our experience,
and those words bring attendant emotions–
— that jerk us around like dogs on a leash.

We get seduced by our own mantras…

I’m a failure…
I’m lonely…
I’m a failure…
I’m lonely…
………. and we become monuments to them. “
