Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

Howard Thurman (1900-1981) minister, educator, civil rights leader

I don’t go out with the idea of seeing an elk, bear, mountain lion. If I go out and keep my expectations in check I always see something interesting … It’s a huge country. It’s just unimaginably rich with what you can see hear, smell and remember if you open yourself up to the adventure.

The Courage of a Master

“The courage of a master is measured by his or her willingness to surrender. This means surrendering to your teacher and to the demands of your discipline. …

Perhaps the best you can hope for on the master’s journey … is to cultivate the mind and heart of the beginning at every stage along the way. For the master, surrender means there are no experts. There are only learners.
