The deepest wound - more from Robert Bly

The image to the right (or above) is from the film, "Braveheart"; in this segment, the boy imagines sitting aside his now dead father, the sharing of, "Follow your heart".  

The fathers wounds are physical, mortal while the son's is emotional, the experience(s) of his village's sufferings under the reign of a tyrant.  

Another excerpt from Iron John,  
...where a man's wound is, that is where his genius will be.  Wherever the wound appears in our psyches...whether it stems from isolation, disability, or disease, that is precisely the place for which we will give our major gift to the community. 
Where is your wound?  If you know...than do you will to give your gifts?
