the shape of a soul

The shape of each soul is different.
There is a secret destiny for each person.
We need to return to the solitude within,
to find again the dream that lies at the hearth of the soul. 


Quote: John O’Donohue

Night’s renewal

  

Renew me this night in the image of your love. Renew me in the likeness of your mercy, O God. May any bitterness of the soul be softened by your graces of the night. (Celtic Benediction)

(From the FB page – the Episcopal Church)

To Love with your Heart

Goodbyes are only for those who Love with their Eyes.
Because for those who Love with their Heart and Soul
there is no such thing as separation.

Rumi

Why write?!

I thank Amelia for her wisdom and share this excerpt from Lifeintheblueridges

It speaks to the core of why writing is so important and so risky.
And for me… A risk well-worth taking!!!

Last night while reading The Spirit of Writing: Classic and Contemporary Essays Celebrating The Writing Life, I came across this great quote that seemed to say it all:

Words, like eyes, are windows into a person’s soul, and thus each writer, in some small way, helps to enrich the world. But it takes courage to share one’s life with another, for we live in a world where every sentence penned can be criticized or praised. But it is a risk worth taking, for a greater vision remains: that through our words, be they fiction or fact, we might touch another soul as we share our stories and song. In that moment, however brief, we suspend the walls of separateness that so often cause suffering and pain.
