Gestalt Prayer

"I do my thing and you do your thing.
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,
And you are not in this world to live up to mine.
You are you, and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, it's beautiful.
If not, it can't be helped."

Fritz Perls, 1969

Love it I haven't thought about this quote for years. I used to study Fritz Perls when I was in college as well as Eric Bern and Jung.

A good friend turned me on to Perls.

That thought is the beginning of the road to peace of mind.


well it cant be helped that the two of us have this beatiful ep friendship :)
