The Gift and the Hole

The Gift and the Hole March 7, 2011

We are each born with a gift and a hole, and given a life to be in conversation with them, to have one fill the other. It doesn’t matter where the hole is in your life or what the gift is, it is always the journey of a life on earth to discover how they meet and complete each other within your time on earth. We waste so much time trying to hide the hole, feel ashamed of the hole, eliminate the hole, feel victimized because we have a hole, or feel that we are entitled not to have any holes, and so are diverted from our soul’s journey. This diversion gives rise to the blame game and keeps us from inhabiting the depths opened by the hole that can only be illumined by the light of our gift.
