“Like the bud of a flower, change forces us to surrender to growth.
It makes us vulnerable.
It requires us to enlarge, expand and become bigger.
Like the oxygen provided with each breath, we are denied its benefits until we relax and breathe in.”
To be connected to each other and the universe is a gift.
To be aware of that connection even greater.
To be grateful for it, infinitely expands it. – K Lang
Understand the nature of impurity. If your key is bent, the lock will not open. Rumi
“Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless, like water.”
Everything must be taught, including compassion. Yeonmi Park
“You are a mansion with infinite rooms, yet you’ve convinced yourself you have to live in the basement of a haunted house.”
The soul walks not upon a line, neither does it grow like a reed.
The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus of countless petals.- Kahlil Gibran The Prophet
Always have the courage
Welcoming those voices
That call you beyond yourself.
“Treat your relationships as if you are growing the most beautiful sacred flower. Keep watering it, tend to its roots, and always make sure the petals are full of color and never curling. Once you neglect your plant, it will die, as will your relationship.”
Suzy Kassem – “Rise up and salute the Sun”
