The Mystery

Edwin Blashfield

The culture pushes young people too hard to define who they are before they have lived enough to know. How can they know such things? It makes sense that we want them to have a focus so they can meet their own needs, but how to clarify true-path, how to individuate from cultural and parental messaging, how to excavate their callings, before they have gone out into the world and gathered information from their experiences. No wonder there are so many identity crises
