Another insightful conversation about identity with my friend, Sarah Rossmiller, of Rebellious Wellness Therapy. We consider the value of self-reflection, how to avoid self-destructive reactivity, and finding ourselves worthy of rebelling for, beginning from Kristin Prevallet's "Whose Hearts Are Pure Gold," a short story titled after a line by Robert W. Chambers.
In a section of "The Prophet's Paradise" entitled The Sacrifice, Chambers writes: "I went into a field of flowers, whose petals are whiter than snow and whose hearts are pure gold. Far afield a woman cried, 'I have killed him I loved!' and from a jar she poured blood upon the flowers whose petals are whiter than snow and whose hearts are pure gold. Far afield I followed, and on the jar I read a thousand names, while from within the fresh blood bubbled to the brim. 'I have killed him I loved!' she cried. 'The world's athirst; now let it drink!' She passed, and far afield I watched her pouring blood upon the flowers whose petals are whiter than snow and whose hearts are pure gold."
