“… the human spirit, as it moves toward spiritual health, knows intrinsically that the artisan process is better for the soul than any process that moves toward mass production.”

Life is sacred. Live on purpose. Be intoxicated with this world and astonished with the world you imagine.  Growth is a journey.. success doesn’t require arrival.  Want what you already hold. Give no place to public opinion. Delight in your friends. Practice the art of doing nothing.  Embrace moments of grace. Give the child in you a wide sky. Understand that laughter is prayer.

– Terry Hershey & Mary Ann Radmacher

“The power of mistakes enables us to reframe creative blocks and turn them around…. The troublesome parts of our work, the parts that are most baffling and frustrating, are in fact the growing edges. We see these as opportunities the instant we drop our preconceptions and our self-importance.”

~-Stephen Nachmanovitch

No matter how spiritual we are, our lives will have challenges. We will always run into people that are different that we are, but the true challenge may be in finding ways to be at peace with this process. Rather than give in to the fight or flight response that comes from our animal nature, we can find new ways to evolve together into higher more beautiful expressions of ourselves, realizing, embracing and celebrating the beauty of diversity and the strength it offers for the future.

“Too often we don’t trust our own deepest truth; it makes us feel too vulnerable or it seems incongruous with the person we think we are or must be.”
