one inborn goal

--to actualize itself as it is.

-Dr. Diana Fosha

when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Reality is always kinder than the stories we tell about it.

-Byron Katie 

Creativity finds its soul when it embraces its shadow.

-Thomas Moore

Who are the prophets?

They are a royal people, who penetrate mystery and see with the spirit's eyes.

In illuminating darkness they speak out. They are living, penetrating clarity. They are a blossom blooming only on the shoot that is rooted in the flood of light.

-Hildegard von Bingen

Someone who goes

with a half a loaf of bread to a small place that fits like a nest around him, someone who wants no more, who is not himself longed for by anyone else. He is a letter to everyone. You open it. It says, Live.


Grief had broken my will and in reverie

the soul was saying

to me,“Not your will,

but let my will be done!”

-from The Soul in Grief
