Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"to love life, to love it even
when you have no stomach for it
and everything you've held dear
crumbles like burnt paper in your hands,
your throat filled with the silt of it.

When grief sits with you, its tropical heat
thickening the air, heavy as water
more fit for gills than lungs;

when grief weights you like your own flesh
only more of it, an obesity of grief,
you think, How can a body withstand this?

Then you hold life like a face
between your palms, a plain face,
no charming smile, no violet eyes,
and you say, yes, I will take you
I will love you, again." ~Ellen Bass

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"Forgiveness is a beautiful thing, but it’s essential that it arises organically.

Many of us claim to have forgiven while still holding toxic emotions below the surface: the forgiveness bypass.

The truth is that we cannot will ourselves into forgiveness. If we try to forgive before we have worked through the feelings, inauthenticity blocks our path.

We cannot be in the real, because we’re not emotionally real. Our heart is still back there." ~Jeff Brown

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

“Have you ever been told you’re “Too Much”? Too intense, too emotional, too personal, too wild, weird, crazy, sensitive, insatiable, not enough of one thing & too much of everything? Good! Your too-muchness is exactly the kick the world needs to wake the hell up and be more than a shadow of better times.

So don’t silence your excesses, don’t try to become less in order to fit in with the dead. Your creation will be richer, your art will have more heart, your story, more epic, thanks to your intensity.” ~Andrea Balt

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

This time, she's practicing the art of conscious endings.

Endings had always been messy in her checkered life. She rarely ever invested energy in endings, mostly because, about half way through, there was no juice in the creations.

Be it relationships, work, a new practice, or even a hobby. After all the enthusiasm and hoo ha in the beginning, it either petered out to nothing, got entangled in knots, or got bitter. Well, almost always.

She's doing endings differently now. No more unfinished stuff, no more walking away leaving loose ends. Or unshed tears, or unsaid feelings. It is all part of her journey of taking ownership of her life and how she runs it.

She's learning the art of difficult conversations, to end what has already ended. She's reading the signs. She's understanding cycles. She's no longer pushing and pulling at a cycle that's already over.

She's releasing entanglements that were like a thorn under her skin. She's walking away. She's repairing what she can. She's giving away a lot of stuff. She's being neat.

Conscious endings will take her into conscious beginnings. Maturity and grace. That's what she is about as she walks out of 2015. The existential is meeting the essential within her. ~Sukhvinder Sircar

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

“The art of becoming conscious is like any other art: you must find your medium, your talent, and your unique approach to expressing the themes that move and torment you the most.

Finally, you must grow the presence and courage to claim your impossible dream. Doing this will take mastery over the forces of density and duality. Mastery over your many faces, the thoughts that burn you at the stake, your own terror.” ~Alison Nappi

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"We wanderers, ever seeking the lonelier way, begin no day where we have ended another day; and no sunrise finds us where sunset left us. Even while the earth sleeps we travel. We are the seeds of the tenacious plant, and it is in our ripeness and our fullness of heart that we are given to the wind and are scattered." ~Khalil Gibran

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"Go out for a walk. It doesn’t have to be a romantic walk in the park. It doesn’t have to be a walk during which you’ll have multiple life epiphanies and discover meanings no other brain ever managed to encounter.

Do not be afraid of spending quality time by yourself. That doesn’t make you antisocial or cause you to reject the rest of the world. But you need to breathe. And you need to be.“ ~Albert Camus

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"People are often disbelieving when a dream shows them that they are a writer, or a healer or whatever their vocation may be – because it confirms their greatest longing.

The dreams show them that it isn’t fanciful – they must follow that secret passion with a life-or-death commitment.

There is a force greater than the dreamer which spins out the dreams. Like nature naturing, as it does for weather, plants and animals, something like the blueprint inherent in the acorn grows it into an oak tree.

Yes there are dreams that emanate from the ego's concerns, but underneath that froth there is a deeper current, an intelligence beyond our own, an organizing principle which is always calling us in the direction of wholeness." ~Toko=pa Turner

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

Most questions are mental or objective in nature
and are satisfied by mental or objective answers.

But a true seeker's question arises from a quest for
truth or freedom and can only be satisfied by experiencing peace.

It is not really answers we desire but peace,
for mostly, questions or doubts trouble us.

Knowing this, the Master brings your mind back to its source
—emptiness—and so our being comes to rest again." ~Mooji
