Inspiration

To be touched by the sacred also means to be touched by pain. It is part of the spiritual journey and is a question of how we respond. We cannot deal with pain unless we can deal with wonder, awe and joy. - Mathew Fox

What matters is that, whatever our fear, we make our way to the edge of the cliff and looking beyond dare to jump. For that is the action that calls forth wings. They do not sprout until we have left the ground. - Jan Phillips

Transformation means that you need to continuously dissolve the old meaning of your life and create your life anew. You actually need to recognize the central meaning of your life to be the evolutionary process itself. - Yasuhiko Kimura

It takes a brave person to confront pain, to leave the ground and to face change. Thanks for the reminder that in order to embrace life, we have to truly live it.

All deep. The one I remember, was it from you, is Life is not about avoiding the storm but learning to dance in the rain. Am still trying to do that. Fail often.

David: Yes, these quotes inspire me right now...but there are so many good ones, and they are constantly changing, because I am always in a new place, learning different things.

Jase: Thank you...what a sweet thing to say.

Furtheron: Well, these particular ones are from the Transformational Arts College calendar - but they tend to find me, everywhere I look...

Em: Beautifully said!

Hattigrace: Wasn't me....but that's a great one, and so true!
