“No matter what we talk about, we are talking about ourselves”
Hugh Prather, I Touch the Earth, the Earth Touches Me

“All my life, I have made it complicated, but it is so simple. I love when I love. And when I love, I am myself.”
Hugh Prather, Notes to Myself: My Struggle to Become a Person

“I sometimes react to making a mistake as if I have betrayed myself. My fear of making a mistake seems to be based on the hidden assumption that I am potentially perfect and that if I can just be very careful I will not fall from heaven. But a 'mistake' is a declaration of the way I am, a jolt to the way I intend, a reminder I am not dealing with the facts. When I have listened to my mistakes I have grown.”
Hugh Prather
