As it has been often said, but seemingly not well heard …that is, no one can find his ‘work’, which he really wants to put all of himself into, when everything he does he is made to do by others. Rather this kind of searching must be done freely or not at all.
We all need space, free from demands, deadlines, expectations and judgments, to explore who we are and what life is all about. Free time, with absolutely no agenda, is rich with potential. How can we grow if we have no space and freedom to dream?
“Deny children or anyone else the chance to do ‘nothing,’ and we may be denying them the chance to do ‘something’, to find and do any work that is truly important to themselves or to someone else”. John Holt.
