Care for the Soul

How many eggs can you hold?

How many eggs can you hold? (From Project You)

“As we listen for the shape of a life of enough, one question in particular seems to strike at the core of this dilemma facing us all. The question is this: How many eggs can we hold?… Once we have reached this moment of satiation – of enough – we can only pick up a new egg if we carefully take at least one from the existing pile in our hands and gently put it down. We must let something go. This is no judgment about our ability, skillfulness, or power. It is simply the inevitable physics of a human life.” (Wayne Muller, A Life of Being, Having, and Doing Enough)

Revelation!  I am a woman who does too much.
