Give yourself permission to go a little nuts

"I think the main thing a lot of people (including myself) don’t realize it that they’ve put up a lot of barriers around their own imagination. You’ve got to give yourself permission to go a little nuts, and explore whatever it is that’s at the weird center of your mind"

Letting Go

Standing at the top of the cliff, he released his baggage - bit by bit - tumbling down the rocks into the sea below, until eventually it was all gone.

Then he leapt off and flew.

Would you invite your band members to your wedding?

a) How can you even ask that question? Of course - we're a band!
b) I'd feel obliged to, but I'd hope some of them would be tactful enough to give excuses why they couldn't come.
c) Only the ones I've known for years
d) Only the ones I like
e) I have no say in the matter: my partner is in charge of the guest list
f) How can you even ask that question? No way! Have you seen my band?

If it's about faith, then I can have faith in anything, and that's OK.

I can have faith in faeries at the bottom of the garden.

But if you want me to have faith in this religious text rather than that one; this belief system rather than that; this interpretation rather than another - then that requires judgment.

And for that, I would need some kind of evidence.
