Write a Letter to a Child.

May 29, 2023

“Write a letter to a child as if you knew you were going to die soon, passing along what you most wish for them to know. What is your deepest wisdom, your highest truth? The things that delight you, in which you’d like the child also to take delight? Secrets you are ready to reveal or heroes who have inspired you? Distill the essence of your legacy.” - Mirabai Starr, “Wild Mercy: Living the Fierce and Tender Wisdom of the Women Mystics”

Mirabai Starr is one of the wise New Mexico women MEA hopes to collaborate with as we open our first campus outside Santa Fe next year. Here are a few questions for you based on her advice:

  1. Which child would be the lucky recipient of your letter?
  2. Would you be open to communicating in the form of a video letter as an alternative?
  3. Which of Mirabai’s questions was easiest for you to answer, and which was most challenging?
  4. How do you define “legacy” in your life?
  5. Are you open to writing this letter this weekend, not knowing who will be the recipient?
