A post on the Open Space List Serve from Amerie Rose. It came from a thread about optimism and progress, not wanting to return to the cave. I love her honesty here. I relate to the value of the cave in similar ways. And need it!
I long for the good old days out in The Cave. I hark back to the time of Dreaming, and often struggle in this time of Doing. I grieve because today I am surrounded by folks who judge me when I ‘go there’ because they lost touch with their’s somewhere along this line of evolution. I battle with myself throughout the year because I STILL only get myself a ticket to there when I have lost ‘The Plot’ to the point of only being ABLE to do what needs to be done – collect wood, make food, protect the children.
