Here’s the thing, say Shug. The thing I believe. God is inside you and inside everybody else. You come into the world with God. But only them that search for it inside find it. And sometimes it just manifest itself even if you not looking, or don’t know what you’re looking for. Trouble do it for most folks. Sorrow, lord…..Alice Walker
how can we be more real? and doesn’t that sound ridiculous? why do we fight who we are? self-blame and indecision slam us, leaving us wondering what happened…..what needs releasing? settle in the intimate heart….
Is it possible to recover a capacity for intimacy that can help us overcome this profound alienation and contribute to a more thoughtful, tender response to the living world? Can we discover a language for the intimacy we seek that honors the earthy, embodied reality of our physical, material existence without ignoring the less visible, more hidden dimensions of our affections rooted in the life of the soul? Can we, in other words, overcome the old habits of dualistic thinking and rediscover a means of expressing and embodying our longing for intimacy and reciprocity with the world that is whole, undivided, and spacious, that allows a free exchange of life across boundaries, a deeper sense of participation within the beautiful pulsing whole?….Douglas Christie
‘Le bapteme de la solitude’….is a unique sensation and has nothing to do with loneliness, for loneliness presupposes memory. Here, in this wholly mineral landscape lighted by stars like flares, even memory disappears; nothing is left but your own breathing and the sound of your heart beating. A strange, and by no means pleasant, process of reintegration begins inside you, and you have the choice of fighting against it, and insisting on remaining the person you have always been, or letting it take its course….Paul Bowles
