Beautiful! This is the gist of what I wrote in early January. You don’t need to strive so much as you need to wash away the mud that is obscuring all of the magnificence that is already there. We were all born perfect — and then the world happens to us. Undoing that and reconnecting with what is already underneath is all that is needed.

Of course, a lot of people didn’t really go for that idea because we live in such a striving-oriented culture. Oh, well!
