Wisdom from Pam Grout

Be recklessly generous and relentlessly kind.

Therapists tell us that until we root out the deep, dark recesses of our unconscious minds, it’s impossible to reach self-fulfillment. A fully-realized person, they insist, must dig for hidden secrets that make him feel unworthy, must dive for past cruelties inflicted by her parents.
