The human soul does not want to be advised or fixed or saved. It simply wants to be witnessed- to be seen, heard and companioned exactly as it is.  ~Parker J. Palmer

how many times do we forget that it is from our pain that we create beauty, not in spite of it?

inquiry for today~ can you take a little extra time to lick your wounds? can you do it lovingly?

offer from sorrow

Sometimes suffering the losses and the unexpected betrayals and break-ups that befall each of us becomes the places where we grow deepest in our capacity to lead an authentic and free life. Often by working our way through our difficulties, our ability to love and feel compassion for ourselves and others deepens, along with the wisdom that will help us through similar problems in the future. And learning how to survive our present difficulties is one of the few things that will help us to know the right things to say and do when others whom we love suffer as well.  ~Jack Kornfield
