Our early experiences have a disproportionate influence on everything that occurs afterward. Mental models represent a compromise between the unencumbered newborn and the parts of us that aligned with parental imperatives. We are faced with the task of recapturing the missing parts of ourselves if we wish to become whole. Meditation and doing the harder thing can help a lot. We sense our greater potential, but tend to continue on the familiar path and thus are kept from consciously knowing it. Our at home feeling may be familiar but the currency it offers may very well be counterfeit.
