wisdom and whimsy, clarity and contentment

Contentment has learned how to find out what she needs to know. Last year she went on a major housecleaning spree. First she stood on her head until the extra facts fell out. Then she discarded about half her house…  P37.

My visits to Clarity are soothing now. He never tells me what to think or feel or do but shows me how to find out what I need to know. It was not always like this. I used to visit other people who visited  him. Finally, I summoned the courage to call on him myself. Was I surprised. He lives on a hill in a little house surrounded by red roses… p15.
