The sun & stars that float in the open air… the apple-shaped Earth and we upon it… surely the drift of them is something grand.
"I do not know what it is except that it is grand, and that it is happiness…”
- Walt Whitman (1819-1892), From "Song of Myself"
Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.”
Marie Curie, first female Nobel Prize winner
We all have talents and skills. Some come to us naturally, and some are hard won through effort and practice. We also have Gifts. Our Gifts pour naturally from us when we are in an open state of unexpectedness (or innocence), merely being our authentic selves joyfully. These Gifts help us fulfill whatever purpose in life we have, whatever passions we pursue, whatever values we cherish, and however we seek to make our hopes and dreams reality.
As we navigate the within spaces and the close-to-home spaces during this winter season, let us celebrate our Selves... who we truly are, discovering our purposeful lives and being confident that the more true we are, the more honest, the more open, and the more authentic we are, then the more trust in our Selves we can have to be living our Gifts - even if we are not yet clear as to what those Gifts may be.
Peace & blessings in this season of "Light Within Darkness"! You are Light... Shine on!
Friends are as companions on a journey, who ought to aid each other to persevere in the road to a happier life."
Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life, or whether that station will be held by anybody else, these pages must show."
-- Charles Dickens'

“To believe in something and not to live it is dishonest.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
"Say not, I have found the path of the Soul. Say rather, I have met the Soul walking upon my path. For the Soul walks upon all paths. The Soul walks not upon a line, neither does it grow like a reed. The Soul unfolds Itself like a lotus of countless petals." -- Kahlil Gibran
