Quote - Uncovering the Whisper

image credit

Affirmations are like screaming that you're okay in order to overcome this whisper that you're not. That's a big contrast to actually uncovering the whisper, realizing that it's a passing memory, and moving closer to all those fears and all those edgy feelings that maybe you're not okay.
Well, no big deal. None of us is okay and all of us are fine. It's not just one way. We are walking, talking paradoxes.  ~Pema Chödrön

Quote - Praise

The fire has its flame and praises God. 
The wind blows the flame and praises God. 
In the voice we hear the word which praises God. 
And the word, when heard, praises God.
So all of creation is a song of praise to God. 
~Hildegard of Bingen

Quote - Movements of Dance

image credit

The existence of ours is as transient as autumn clouds.
To watch the birth and death of beings is like looking at the movements of a dance.
A lifetime is like a flash of lightning in the sky, 
Rushing by, like a torrent down a steep mountain.  ~Buddha

Quote - The Heart Appoints

I will not hide my tastes or aversions.
I will so trust that what is deep is holy, 
that I will do strongly before the sun and moon 
whatever only rejoices me, 
and the heart appoints.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
