Gleanings found here and there:

Never underestimate the power of compassionately recognizing what’s going on.  ~ Pema Chödron

Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.  ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Doorway to the Past

No matter how far you are from yourself, no matter how exiled you feel from your contribution to the rest of the world; as a human being all you have to do is enumerate exactly the way you don’t feel at home in the world, say exactly how you don’t belong, and the moment you’ve uttered the exact dimensionality of your exile, you’re already taking the path back to the way – back to the place – you should be.

You’re already on your way home.  ~ David Whyte
