Finding Inner Authority

The more unstable life seems, the more we gravitate toward the “security” promised by authority figures.

We marry authority figures, elect them, go to their churches and join their cults.

When these people are unmasked and discredited we learn to take our power back and pick up the pieces of our lives.

Whenever we uproot ourselves to follow the empty promises of others, we tend to get beaten up by our experiences.

Then, we return to our lives humbled, shovels in hand, and begin the work of planting our own garden.

Those who abandon their roots will learn to find them. Those who have sought authority in other people will learn to find it in themselves. ~ From Everyday Wisdom by Paul Ferrini
