Declare Amnesty

Declare Amnesty

Every week I receive a completely out-there astrology email from Rob Brezsny. He writes in big, wild metaphors that borders woo-woo, but if you pay attention, his words are stuffed with some great, wise stuff.

I leave this with you to keep your week rolling:

“Declare amnesty for the part of you that you don’t love very well. Forgive that poor sucker. Hold its hand and take it out to dinner and a movie. Tactfully offer it a chance to make amends for the dumb things it has done.

And then do a dramatic reading of this proclamation by the playwright Theodore Rubin:

‘I must learn to love the fool in me — the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my fool.'”
