ENCOURAGING WORDS

Sometimes reading a quote or a poem can give a sense of possibility, or help you to remember that you are already good enough.   If you notice this happening, then those words may be worthy of your attention.

Care of the Soul isn't about some idea of perfection

Thomas Moore

 

Tell me, what is it you plan to do

with your one wild and precious life?

 

From the poem ‘The Summer Day’ by Mary Oliver

 

 

 

Everything flowers, from within, of self blessing;

though sometimes it is necessary

to reteach a thing its loveliness

From the poem ‘St Francis & the Sow’ by Galway Kinnell

 

 

 

Suffering is our call to attention, our call to investigate the truth

of our beliefs

Tara Brach

 

 

 

The only journey is the journey within

 

Rainer Maria Rilke

 

 

 

One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious

 

Carl G Jung

"There is something in every one of you that waits and listens for the sound of the genuine in yourself. It is the only true guide you will ever have"

 

Howard Thurman
