The Shyness of Self

Sometimes there are aspects of ourselves that have a very quiet voice.  It doesn’t matter if we’re an extrovert, if we’ve lived a spiritual life for over 40 years, if we’ve “found” ourselves or been walking our path.  There are parts of us that whisper, that need quiet, that wait until things are still to peek out and see if it’s not too scary to come out. …Details
