COT:

I rambled about the challenge of parenting and remembering it is not about me. It is hard to remember that day to day and moment to moment and “hold it”. Encouraging all PAX to remember it is not about “you”. Not be self-less – but to really hold others (including our children) at the center. So that means dealing with ourselves to make room for others to be supported. Ramble included quoting from the weekend movie at my house from Marvel – Dr. Strange…

  • The Ancient One Arrogance and fear still keep you from learning the simplest and most significant lesson of all.

    Dr. Stephen Strange Which is?

    The Ancient One It’s not about you.

    Went down the rabbit hole on IMBD…

     

  • The Ancient One We never lose our demons, Mordo. We only learn to live above them.

  • Dr. Stephen Strange I’m not ready.

    The Ancient One No one ever is. We don’t get to choose our time.

    [takes his hand] 

    The Ancient One Death is what gives life meaning. To know your days are numbered. Your time is short. You’d think after all this time, I’d be ready. But look at me. Stretching one moment out into a thousand… just so that I can watch the snow.

  • The Ancient One [on magic]  You cannot beat a river into submission; you have to surrender to its current, and use its power as your own.

    Dr. Stephen Strange I control it by surrendering control? That doesn’t make any sense.

    The Ancient One Not everything does. Not everything has to. Your intellect has taken you far in life, but it will take you no further. Surrender, Stephen.
