“Every Day We Slaughter Our Finest Impulses” ~ Henry Miller
Henry Miller has always been among my favorites. Here, Miller discusses Supreme Self-Confidence.
“Every day, we slaughter our finest impulses. That is why we get a heart-ache when we read those lines written by the hand of a master and recognize them as our own, as the tender shoots which we stifled because we lacked the faith to believe in our own powers, our own criterion of truth and beauty.”
“Every (hu)man, when (s)he gets quiet, when (s)he becomes desperately honest with himself (herself), is capable of uttering profound truths. We all derive from the same source. There is no mystery about the origin of things. We are all part of creation, all kings, all poets, all musicians; we have only to open up, to discover what is already there.”
What is the song that you long to sing that you would sing . . . if only? If ONLY you had the Supreme Self Confidence to believe in Yourself?
Read the above Henry Miller quote OUT LOUD – and then try it a few times more OUT LOUD. Monitor the feelings in your gut. How does it feel to examine self-doubt and its opposite? Please let me know the results of your experiment.
