“The way to enlightenment is through the body.” Gautama Buddha

The wisdom of embodiment …

“Therefore, dark past, I'm about to do it. I'm about to forgive you for everything.” Mary Oliver

What a challenge . . .

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” Rainer Maria Rilke

This quote has always been my “re-set” for moments/periods of confusion.

"To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don't need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself." Thich Nhat Hanh

I liked this perspective on reaching inner peace —

"Ours is not the task of of fixing the entire world at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach.” Clarissa Pinkola Estés

A good daily reminder!

"It's in our biology to trust what we see with our eyes. This makes living in a carefully edited, overproduced, and photoshopped world very dangerous." Brenè Brown

This idea demands as crucial all our attempts at awareness.

“Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

This thought is something to return to during these turbulent times —

1. Be impeccable with your word. 2. Don't take anything personally. 3. Don't make assumptions. 4. Always do your best. "The Four Agreements" by Miguel Ruiz

Good, demanding advice . . . .

"Your theory is crazy, but it's not crazy enough to be true." physicist Niels Bohr

Crazy wisdom to contemplate!
