What I often say is that I can tell you what's going to happen if you go in a straight line. Who the hell goes in a straight line? Nobody! But by telling you where you're going to end up if you keep going in that general direction, you can decide what to do differently, if anything. It gives you control in a way you didn't have before. Now you can decide consciously where to go and who you need to be to get there. What do I need to heal to create that outcome? Who do I need to be to create that outcome?
