This being human is a guest-house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows, Who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture. Still, treat each guest honorably. Who may be clearing you out
for some new delight. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.
"Self-doubt holds women in tight, but seemingly safe, corners. In truth, to doubt your divine gifts is an insult to Creation. You are only a conduit. Get out of the way. Awaken to the truth that you are here on purpose. You are a magnificent being created by the same energy that created every person you’ve ever admired. To nurture, grow, and express the best in you is to honor Creation. This benefits not only you, but also every other person confined to their personal corner of doubt. When you become your best, you are a beacon of possibility, a living inspiration. When you play small, your suffering is not limited to you. It touches everyone."
"I think brutal honesty is extremely important. Don’t be afraid of being up-front about your feelings and your life. I’d rather be an honest friend than a phony lover."
