Grandmother’s Message – Oriah Mountain Dreamer

“Grandmother in the dream told me I was headed in the wrong direction. She said, ‘The question is not why are you so infrequently the people you really want to be but why do you so infrequently want to be the people you really are.’ And then she answered the question saying, ‘Because you have no faith that who you are is enough.’ And she continued, ‘But it is. Your true nature as human beings is compassionate, and this essential nature makes you capable of being intimately and fully present. Who you really are is enough.'”
