Healing is an art. It takes time. It takes practice. It takes love.- Maza Dohta
We learn to understand ourselves through our relationships with the world around us--its seasons and landscapes, challenges and opportunities. And through our journey to find our place among so many others, we begin to recognize our own glimmer of light in a constellation of stars.- Madisyn Taylor Source: Physical Bodies on Earth, DailyOM
“How you love yourself is how you teach others to love you.”― Rupi Kaur, Milk and Honey
“If you have the ability to love, love yourself first.”― Charles Bukowski
"You and you alone are responsible for you, for your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. You are responsible for the thoughts, feelings, and actions you put out into the world. You are responsible for having your emotional needs met and for asking for what you want, need or desire from others. You and only you are responsible for going after what you truly want in life. It is no one else’s job to do that."- Gabriel Gonsalves More about the difference between being responsible to others vs. responsible for ourselves: https://www.heartintelligencecoach.com/responsible/
"On this path let the heart be your guide for the body is hesitant and full of fear."- Rumi
"There's nothing more frightful than being completely well, because then you have to take responsibility for the world around you."- Scott Petersen https://youtu.be/ufQptgr1--s
Sometimes, our pain roots in the stories we tell ourselves.
“Really important meetings are planned by the souls long before the bodies see each other. Generally speaking, these meetings occur when we reach a limit, when we need to die and be reborn emotionally. These meetings are waiting for us, but more often than not, we avoid them happening. If we are desperate, though, if we have nothing to lose, or if we are full of enthusiasm for life, then the unknown reveals itself, and our universe changes direction.”- Paul Coelho, Eleven minutes.
