Opening to Maturity

When we no longer project the wounding of our core story – either onto someone else – or onto the world at large, we begin to come to terms with ourselves: our sensitivities and our beliefs about life and its representatives, beginning with our parents. We come to better know our blind-spots, our weaknesses, and our strengths, as we negotiate the world and our relationship to it. Less and less do we project our difficulties upon the stage of the world itself. We begin to navigate life – with all its challenges – more easily, even when it’s not easy, with a greater degree of maturity and awareness.
