The task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

Rumi

 

Hey there. Can you sit with me for a while? I've breathed in too much emptiness, and I am frightened of what I might exhale. Just stay for a bit in silence, and maybe you can also hear what hides in the shadows of my heart. It cries out to be heard by someone besides me.

L.L. (Musings)

 

What is true is already so. Owning up to it doesn't make it worse. Not being open about it doesn't make it go away. And because it is true, it is what is there to be interacted with. Anything untrue isn't there to be lived. People can stand what is true, for they are already enduring it.

Eugene Gendlin

 

Every part of our personality that we do not love will become hostile to us. We could add that it may move to a distant place and begin a revolt against us as well.

Robert Bly

 

To touch the surface is to stir the depths.

Deane Juhan

 

So, if you are too tired to speak, sit next to me, because I, too, am fluent in silence.

R. Arnold

 

The soul does nothing if you do nothing; but it can light a fire if you chop wood; if you make a boat it becomes the ocean.

Robert Bly

 

We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.

Joseph Campbell
