We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses.
Mild Charity’s glow, to us mortals below,
Shows the soul from barbarity clear,
Compassion will melt where this virtue is felt,
And its dew is diffused in a Tear.
~Lord Byron, “The Tear”
“I read, I interpret, I think, I criticize, I oppose, I listen, I write, I question, I reply, I quote, I tell, I name, I discuss, I interpolate…, I learn, I teach, I live, therefore I am.”
~Marc-Alain Ouaknin, Mysteries of the Kabbalah, p383.
I am responsible for the pace I bring to the moment, just as I am responsible for the peace I bring to the moment…
~Christina Baldwin (The Seven Whispers)
