As any detective knows, when something is missing that should be present, a void where there should be a plenum, it is an important clue. Like the archetypal philosophical detective Socrates, I set out to discover what had happened to justice. Had it disappeared from modern minds, hearts, and conversation? Or merely from the consciousness of New Age pilgrims?
Hoshin is a Japanese word roughly meaning both internal compass and personal North Star and is a practice designed to break through apparent chaos to find a hidden higher order and direction.
Hoshin almost always starts with a question, and you want to choose a question that really excites you, where you would feel phenomenal if you woke up living the answer to that question.
The truth? Yes. That is what I believe is the magic of writing, what makes it a healing art — when we know ourselves with such intimacy and candor, we may flinch, but we do not run.
