My approach to this role is not to give you answers or do all the "work" for you. That wouldn't be very fulfilling for either of us. In fact, when it comes to answers, I'm far more fascinated and focused on their questions. As many spiritual and psychological teachers implore us: "live the question!"
This seems so counter-intuitive for our culture that loves a good statistic, an immediately microwavable solution, and closure to any sort of discomfort at the speed of a text message. Know this, though: the human soul is first and foremost a being of the natural world—like the willow tree, a quartz deposit, or Turkey Tail mushroom—and as such, the soul abides by the rhythms of nature. Unlike the 24 hour news cycle, the rhythms of nature happen to be impressively slow and gentle in their story arc.
If one is to do the work involved with spiritual direction, one must unlearn our cultural obsession with fast answers and cultivate a deep contentment with slow questions. Trust me—life, everything, feels better this way.
