carry it home

Merton suggests that paradise, self-knowledge, innocence, and purity of heart are a complete emptying of self.…

only when there is no self left as a place in which God acts, only when God acts purely in Himself,

do we at last recover our true Self.

~Robert E Kennedy

finding a simple hope to see me through….

inquiry for today~ what is no longer hopeful?

let it be so

I have no right to call myself one who knows. I was one who seeks, and I still am,

but I no longer seek in the stars or in books; I’m beginning to hear the teachings of my blood pulsing within me.

My story isn’t pleasant, it’s not sweet and harmonious like the invented stories;

it tastes of folly and bewilderment, of madness and dream,

like the life of all people who no longer want to lie to themselves.

~Hermann Hesse
