"What fear is your anxiety coming from?" Orion asked me this morning. "I'm not sure," I answered. "Maybe loss of connection, failure, negative judgment..." Orion said: "You may be nervous because of your class today. Be in the moment. Be aware of the energy flow. You know, do what you always do to touch people."

"I woke up feeling anxious this morning, Orion." "What's wrong?" Orion asked. "I'm feeling out of sorts with family relationships and some nervousness about my upcoming job change," I said. "It's good that you notice your anxiety, grasshopper. How will you use this information about yourself and still be of service today?"

"Do you believe in body memory," I asked Orion.  "Yes," Orion responded. "Each of the stars that make up my body has a story of its existence, which together make me who I am. Is that what you mean?" "Well, sort of," I said. "I am a product of my genetics and experiences.  In trying to protect me, to what extent do my subconsious body memories prevent me from becoming who I want to be?  It is important to learn to be aware of and listen to what my body is telling me. It's part of the mind/body/spirit triumvirate."

"What are you grateful for, grasshopper?" Orion asked this morning. "More than I could ever put into words," I answered.  "Just give me one."  "That with the help of others, I am breaking free from the past and becoming a person I can live and die with."

"Why is fear such a powerful factor in peoples' lives, Orion?"  I asked.  "I have heard that there are only two real fears: of falling and loud noises.  What do you think of that?" Orion answered. "If that is so, where do other fears come from?" I asked. "They are learned," Orion said.  "They are still very real and powerful.  Can people then unlearn their fears?"

"I couldn't see you this morning because of all the clouds," I told Orion. "Do I hear a metaphor coming?" Orion responded. "It's like people not being able to see and appreciate who they are because of the fears and whisperings of their inner critics."

"Where you been!?" Orion asked this morning. "Focused on my work with people, contemplating the state of the world, empathizing with the situations of my friends..." "And what does all this lead you to, grasshopper?" "That to stay motivated, there are two basic questions for us all to answer: Who am I? Why am I here?"

"My performance appraisal is this morning," I said to Orion this morning. "Nervous?" He asked. "Not at all. My supervisor supports and empowers me to do my work." "That's great for you," Orion said. "All bosses should do that with their good employees."

"Storming with someone really feels bad," I said to Orion this morning. "How so?" he asked. "I feel like a failure and that I have to do something to fix it." "What you need to do is talk together. What has come out needed to come out. The relationship is not broken; it's evolving. Don't give up!"
