calling from within

1-DSC03413

As we slip below the surface mind,
below the flotsam of the surface world,
we travel to our true level,
where the deep silence of identity
is reached and embraced.
…..John O’Donohue

we’ve opened and closed the door to contentment many times…….go in and in, like a shell, like the deep heart that shimmers through the night…..close in, be whole, be blessed…..

The world needs introverts. We are the ones who go deep, feel deep, and are not afraid of that depth. We are the scholars of the soul. No one spends as much time in states of introspection as introverts do. We think a lot. But if we stop there, because the world out there makes us too tired to even move—and I do understand that, trust me—we deprive the world of our highest selves, and the well-honed craft we have nurtured. It’s not enough to be quietly brilliant, shining your light in a closet.

You need to change the way you think in order to move forward in your life. You are not going to move forward using the same mindset that you already have. Something needs to shift.

My wish for you, dear introvert, is to make a commitment to yourself to not keep your gifts from the world. They are the most intricate well-thought-out powerful entities ever created! We need them out here in the loud, messy, wild world. As introverts, it is our duty to make sure that we live full and vibrant lives. And have fun doing it…..Rachel Astarte Piccione

those daydreams of sweet times

Let your mind start a journey through
a strange new world. Leave all thoughts
of the world you knew before. Let your
soul take you where you long to be.
Close your eyes, let your spirit start to soar,
and you’ll live as you’ve never lived before.
…..Erich Fromm
