I just got off the phone after talking with my spiritual mentor. We discussed the importance of creativity, but mostly other very heavy topics. It was challenging, though she's kind and gentle.
What made it terrifying was that, after facing some ways I defeat myself, I phoned her to discuss them with her. Though they're nothing shocking, it can be scary to disclose one's faults, no matter how humdrum and unremarkable the faults or how nice the person to whom one is speaking.
