How Do We Get to Here?

A question that comes up for us on podcasts all the time is, "How did you get to here?" And it briefly makes me wish I had a way more glamorous story. Mostly though, I'm glad for the weird and wonderful way life unfolds.

More than the story, what does intrigue me is our motivations. What means that we get involved, rather than strolling or scrolling past?

For me there was a simple fascination of a deeper truth that could explain what I knew I knew, but didn't know what I knew. And then the dogged determination to find someone, anyone, who could actually articulate it. And finally the willingness to talk about it.

What about you? What motivated you? And does the same thing motivate you now?

With Love, Sara

    These days I hang out with my little cat colony, drink a lot of coffee, help clients solve life problems, support people who have been hurt by cult-like groups, host my local poetry society’s online gatherings, read, write, teach nonduality, and play with this expanded understanding of who we are and how it shows up. And it’s so simple. But simple doesn’t always come easy when we have a lifetime of conditioning on top. So, I’m here to help you uncover that simplicity, and reconnect with life.
