Creative Quotations from . . .
Joanna Field
(1900-1998) born on
Jan 00
English psychologist. Her "A Life of Ones Own" is a wonderful journey of self-discovery.
The growth of understanding follows an ascending spiral rather than a straight line.

I came to the conclusion then that "continual mindfulness". . . must mean, not a sergeantmajor-like drilling of thoughts, but a continual readiness to accept whatever came.
I began to suggest that thought, which I had always before Iooked on as a cart-horse to be driven, whipped and plodding between shafts, might be really a Pegasus, so suddenly did it alight beside me from places I had no knowledge of.
I began to have an idea of my life, not as the slow shaping of achievement to fit my preconceived purposes, but as the gradual discovery and growth of a purpose which I did not know.
I used to trouble about what life was for -- now being alive seems sufficient reason.
