"Anything you do from the soulful self will help lighten the burdens of
the world. Anything. You have no idea what the smallest word, the
tiniest generosity can cause to be set in motion. Be outrageous in
forgiving. Be dramatic in reconciling. Mistakes? Back up and make them
as right as you can, then move on. Be off the charts in kindness. In
whatever you are called to, strive to be devoted to it in all aspects
large and small. Fall short? Try again. Mastery is made in increments,
not in leaps. Be brave, be fierce, be visionary. Mend the parts of the
world that are within your reach. To strive to live this way is the most
dramatic gift you can ever give to the world."
Clarissa Pinkola Estes
American Author, Poet and Psychologist
"Enjoy life, you children of God."
(As seen spray-painted on a sidewalk in San Francisco)
Please consider this a wake-up call
It is time to play
It is time to create
We cannot worry or fight our way out of anything
But we can always create solutions
We can re-dream, re-imagine and re-build our world
From the ground up if we have to
But first my friend
We have to wake up.
