Deep within us all, there is an amazing inner sanctuary of the soul, a holy place, a divine center, a speaking voice, to which we may continuously return. Eternity is at our hearts, pressing upon our time-torn lives, warming us with intimations of an astounding destiny, calling us home unto itself.
Soak up the love and warmth from the world around you. Practice being warm, loving and open. Do more that just think a kind loving thought. Say it. Do more than think of something nice you’d like to do for someone. Do it. Then radiate that warmth to the people around you. Warm up to people. Warm up to life. Warm up to yourself.
- Melody Beattie
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The man is not he who does not feel afraid but he who conquers that fear. Our aim is to fully awaken our heart and mind, not just for our own greater well-being but also to bring benefit, solace, and wisdom to other living beings. What motivation could stop that? Said the river: Imagine everything you can imagine, then keep going. Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That's why it's a comfort to go hand in hand. Reminders when healing... it won't happen overnight new habits equal a new life there will be ups and downs the seeds we plant will bloom.
When you do things from your soul,
you feel a river moving in you, a joy.
