To flourish in life, one must come to know and trust that it is good to be you. As Brian McLaren writes: “What we all want is pretty simple, really. We want to be alive. To feel alive. Not just to exist but to thrive….We want to be less lonely, less exhausted, less conflicted or afraid… more awake, more grateful, more energized and purposeful. We capture this kind of mindful, overbrimming life in terms like well-being, shalom, blessedness, wholeness, harmony, life to the full, and above all aliveness.

In other words: Flourishing.  In this episode I explore some of the meaning of these transforming words from Psalm 139: 13-14

“For you created my inmost being;

you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

your works are wonderful,

I know that full well.”

In the quest for the true self, one begins to appreciate and accept one’s personality and one’s life as an essential way that God calls us to be ourselves. Everyone is called to sanctity in different ways— in often very different ways. It is Good To Be You!

2. A Transforming Tool: The Sacred Enneagram.  The Enneagram is a dynamic system for self-knowledge and spiritual transformation. It is a wonderful tool that can help us see and let go of the false self—which masks the image of God within us—and allow us to live from our True Self—the unique manifestation of Love that God intends us to be.

With you on the Journey!
