Inspiring Quotations

 

“If you’re really listening, if you’re awake to the poignant beauty of the

wonders.” -Andrew Harvey, The Return of the Mother

“In times when everything feels out of control, it’s comforting to remember that our small, fear-brained self doesn’t need to MAKE something happen.  We can allow this dynamic transformation to play out.

“Sometimes the one who is running from the Life/Death/Life nature insists on thinking of love as a boon only. Yet love in its fullest form is a series of deaths and rebirths. We let go of one phase, one aspect of love, and enter another. Passion dies and is brought back. Pain is chased away and surfaces another time. To love means to embrace and at the same time to withstand many endings, and many many beginnings- all in the same relationship.”
