“If there is any wisdom running through my life now, in my walking on this earth,
it came from listening in the Great Silence
to the stones, trees, space, the wild animals,
to the pulse of all life as my heartbeat.”
If you’re really listening, if you’re awake to the poignant beauty of the world, your heart breaks regularly. In fact, your heart is made to break; its purpose is to burst open again and again so that it can hold evermore wonders.
~ Andrew Harvey
“The world is holy. We are holy. All life is holy.
Daily prayers are delivered on the lips of breaking waves,
the whisperings of grasses, the shimmering of leaves.”
~Terry Tempest Williams
“When we open the doorway to our awareness,
peel back the veil on our illusions,
there’s no going back and it’s nearly impossible to ignore.
I continue to ask myself:
what is the song of my heart’s deepest longing?
Each time I wake from a dream I gain a word,
a note, another phrase of that song.
And slowly, I am assembling.
Bringing the fragments of myself back together again.
Assembling the pieces of a song that is longing to be sung.
A life that is longing to become.”
“Women’s stories are as powerful, inspiring, and terrifying as the goddess herself.
And in fact, these are the stories of the goddess.
As women, we know her because we are she.
Each woman, no matter how powerless she might feel,
is a cell within her vast form, an embodiment of her essence,
and each woman’s story is a chapter in the
biography of the sacred feminine.”
