Each of us was formed in a hidden, secret place. Our parents had to be patient for around nine months to catch their first sight of us. The mystery and wonder of this doesn’t escape us.
These words – hidden, secret, mystery, wonder – continue to be descriptors for our lives because the future is hidden within us. Not what we have done or who we have been, but what we will do and our future Self.
Every day is an opportunity to bring to birth, your “deepest, as yet unborn, self.”*
