Out of nowhere today I suddenly remembered Michelangelo's famous statement that the statues he "created" already existed inside the blocks of stone in his workshop. His job was not to carve a sculpture out of stone, but to cut away everything that was not the sculpture, freeing it.

It could well be said that at this time my job is to remove everything from my life that is not truly my life, allowing my authentic self to emerge in its unique power and beauty.

Indeed, I think that's exactly what you are and should be doing. Perhaps it's something we all should consider. It's always wonderful to see the development of your journey. ^_^
