People, like boats, want to be firmly anchored when life's seas are rough. In our efforts to resist the winds of change, we will often affix ourselves to a deep belief - and hope this prevents too much 'drift'. This is all fine if the anchorage point is genuinely strong. Often though, we tie ourselves to ideas that appear to have solid foundations but are actually floating just as freely as we are.

beautiful thought, i felt....important to see whether our centerings are anchored in "beliefs" or in personal authentications...our own truths as we have discovered for ourselves...
