“Through the years I have found no matter how accomplished the life, as measured by the often superficial parameters of popular culture, most people lack elemental permission to be who they are or to give voice to the magnitude of soul that exists within them.
I am not talking at all about narcissistic self-indulgence. Rather, I am talking about the permission to let be what is within one’s nature and allow it expression in forms that are not harmful to self or others.”
