All of life is a first. Even if you’ve done something before, you’ve never done it now, on this day, feeling this way, in these conditions, with these particular limitations and advantages. Let that awareness be grace. Let it be a peace that surpasses all understanding. Let it be the seed of kindness, toward yourself and everybody else. And let it be just enough to help you tolerate the discomfort of being fully alive.
– Dr. Kelly Flanagan, “The Most Important Choice You’ll Ever Make“
“Train yourself to let go of the things you fear to lose.”
The “fruits of letting go” come when I can truly see that I am not in charge, and that I can trust in the divinity and process of change.
– SARK, Transformation Soup
… life has taught me that it knows better plans than we can imagine, so that I try to submerge my own desires… into a calm willingness to accept what comes, and to make the most of it, then wait again.
– Julia Seton, By A Thousand Fires
