to be brave enough

“the new dawn blooms as we free it – for there is always light if only we’re brave enough to see it, if only we’re brave enough to be it.”

the Journey – to follow a star or move through life

In our obsessive wish to arrive, we often forget the most important thing, which is the journey.

 


Quote: Paolo Coehlo

Follow your truth

 

And if you follow your truth down the road to peace and the affirmation of love,
if you shine like a beacon for all to see,
then the poetry of all the great dreamers and philosophers is yours to manifest in a nation,
a world community, and a Beloved Community that is finally at peace with itself.

As if it were new…

Blessing
Ancient One
who makes all things new,
may we receive with gentleness
and touch with hopefulness
and protect with fierceness
and love with tenderness;
and may we celebrate with gratefulness
and welcome with humbleness
and tend with gracefulness
all that you give.

Treasure deeply…

When we embrace the poignancy and vulnerability that come with gratefulness, we’re reminded that time is limited and experiences are fleeting, so we had better treasure deeply what we have now and live more fully into what we know really matters.
