I was listening to NPR

I was listening to NPR on my way home today. They had a bit on Heather Nova’s new CD, South, and the song Virus of the Mind. She was talking about how we so often get caught up in the expectations of others, our society, Madison Ave., and the like, that we loose track of who we are – allowing others to determine who we are, what we believe, what we want, rather then relying upon our own intuition, our own sense. She calls this a virus of the mind.
I just don’t think I can take being forced into the form of an Episcopal priest that most people will expect. I’m having a hard time with that. I don’t know where I will fit in, but the notion that I loose myself because of the position and the position’s expectations.
