The Long and

Winding Road

Insight Narrative

Below you have been given the first ten sections of the insight narrative to complete. Please complete one section per day. Write it out with paper and pen.

  • Pretend that you are writing a book and are in the process of designing a character who will play the lead role. Tell the story of this character, but use your own life as the basis for the character. Tell this character’s story.
  • Just as an actor or actress takes on a role, and puts it on like a piece of clothing and wears it, so you have taken on the identity of the character you have just described. But everything you wrote about that character is just a story. It’s not real. If you were to take off the identity of that character and put it aside, what would be left that is true? In other words, without your story, who are you?
  • How does being a person with no story affect what you spend your day doing?
  • How does being a person with no story affect your spiritual beliefs?
  • How does being a person with no story affect who you choose to be with?
  • How does being a person with no story affect what you believe about the world?
  • How does being a person with no story affect your personal worth?
  • How does being a person with no story affect your personal health?
  • How does being a person with no story affect how you feel about your possessions?
  • How does being a person with no story affect how your emotions feel?
