One of my favourite all time movies is John Ford’s ‘The Searchers.’ A journey over years and seasons by two men in search of an abducted child results in an essential internal change for both characters, but especially for Ethan.
Ethan hates Native Americans and everything touched by them, even the abducted child, now a young woman. He desires to kill her thinking that this abused woman’s death will free his mind.
It won’t, as realises at the film’s end when he rescues and not kills; restores and carries Debbie back to her family.
Our fearless searching in step four, my journey as I write my inventory, is about letting this step take me where I want to and where I do not want to go.
Step 4 is about fearlessly searching.
