"It's much easier to ride the horse in the direction he's going." ... 
This essay, Be What You Are (working title), is the companion piece to Space For Redemption: When "I'm Sorry!" Isn't Enough.

It is also the sequel to Common Man Common Place.

I am indebted to Donovan Copley who inspired this conversation.

Work in progress.

When I look at whatever issues I have with the way my life is going, I notice it's really less of the way it's going, than it is the significance I add to it, wherein the trouble lies.

I've discovered it's useful in letting go of significance, to entertain the possibility that adding significance isn't something I do, as much as it's an automatic function of the machinery. So letting go of significance doesn't require I stop doing  something, as much as it's noticing how automatic the process of significance-making is, and then seeing if I'm willing to no longer identify with it.

If you're this, be this; if you're that, be that.

Be what you are. It's enough. Really. Keep your fingers out of the machinery.
