Help me help you.
People look everywhere outside of themselves for fulfilment. Some of the sages called this "being scattered." What is fulfilment but a state of our inner-self? A lonely person is lonely even when surrounded by a crowd of people; a bitter person, an angry person the same. People too often believe that circumstances govern who and what they are; that circumstances dictate how they feel. I wish to help those grown scattered and/or isolated.
You are by nature creative, resourceful and capable of finding the answers that break old habits of behaviour and patterns of thinking that have not worked. It is my role to encourage and guide; to both point to your path and help you walk it. We all need a companion upon the way. My goal is to empower you by supporting every good habit and pattern of thought and behaviour, to identify the things that harm and to augment your own skill set, become a part of your resource base, and spur creativity. All true healing is creative.
Life is too short to live it unintelligently, to accept circumstances as absolute and unchangeable, and to fall short of fulfilling our talents and abilities. It is also our responsibility as a human, to become truly human, to open our hearts to the good uses and the full range of human emotion. A person "scattered" is also malformed, blocked as it were, from their own best self.
Getting from where we are now, to where we really want to be always requires change. There is one absolute, change is painful. But also absolute is the fact that failure to change is spiritual and emotional paralysis, the stunting of development, how we become malformed. Failure to change is the abandonment of our own humanity, and our potential as a human being. Such people merely mark time till death, unable to find meaning in even the most meaningful things life has to offer. Perhaps together we will discover where change is needed, where change is possible and when you are ready we will walk the path of change together.
