“Don’t walk too far away from the child within you, and never abandon the sense of wonder that magnifies the smallest things into mountains of joy. For one day, when you lose sight of happiness, that child within will guide you back to the things that once nourished your heart.”   Dodinsky

And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year:  “Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.”  And he replied: “Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the hand of God.  That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.”  So I went forth, and finding the Hand of God, trod gladly into the night.  And He led me towards the hills and the breaking of day in the lone East.”  

Minnie Haskins , 1908

 Mary's Journey by Hugo van der Goes

Mary's Journey by Hugo van der Goes

"We are on a soulful path that asks us to step into the greatest version of ourselves.  It is a sacred gift to shine our brightest light - not just in our moments of glory, but each and every step of our journey."    Debbie Ford,  American author

If you inherently long for something, become it first.  If you want gardens, become the gardener.  If you want love, embody love.  If you want mental stimulation, change the conversation.  If you want peace, exude calmness.  If you want to fill your world with artists, begin to paint.  If you want to be valued, respect your own time.  If you want to live ecstatically, find the ecstasy within yourself.  This is how you draw it in,  day by day, inch by inch."

“The happiness we seek cannot be found through grasping and trying to hold onto things.  It cannot be found through getting uptight about wanting things to go in the direction we think will bring us happiness.  We are always taking hold of the wrong end of the stick.  The point is that the happiness we seek is already here.  And it will be found through relaxation and letting go, rather than through struggle.        Pema Chodron

“When you give of yourself, something new comes into being.  The world expands.  A bit of goodness is brought forth and a miracle occurs. Never underestimate this miracle.
