I came across this statement by Virginia Satir, known by some as the Mother of Family Therapy. Satir used counseling to achieve her stated goals, I use spiritual insight and practice. Her sentiment expressed below moved me. Ah! Should everyone have such conviction!
“I try to help people experience their spiritual connectedness by helping them get in touch with both their tenderness and their power. To reach them . . . we need to see that we are born to evolve. It is a growing thing, and there is no fear in it. Not that we haven’t heard this message before. It’s what Christ talked about, and the Buddha, and others. But in the past most of us said, ‘They’re beyond us, they’re divine. We’re nothing but humans, so we can’t make the same connection.’ “
“But now, we’re beginning to know that we can.”
