Is my exterior hard, dry, brittle and somewhat dirty like the onion? What does my interior reveal about the real me? Do I easily induce tears in myself or others? What is it that provokes my tears; of pain, of anger, of joy? What actions do I engage in that entice me to awake from my slumber and to embrace the life I have been given? Where do I show versatility? What values are central to my core? Where is it that I am the key ingredient, evoking warmth, passion and nourishment to myself and others?
Is it time to cut the outer layer to reveal the segments that cling to your central core? Do you know what those segments really are? Who you are? What it is that you would like to change before your hard, dull and brittle exterior is cut to reveal your core; the real you?
