A Present: Quotes for Inquiry

"... and i said to my body. softly. ‘i want to be your friend.’ it took a long breath. and replied ‘i have been waiting my whole life for this...’ ~ Extract from the poem Three by Nayyirah Waheed

"The Body Craves Truth. For years, I kept my truth bottled up inside. I stuffed it down. I covered it up with masks. I allowed myself to be silenced so I wouldn’t make waves. I wanted people to like me. I wanted to blend in. But my body hated it. My body started to whisper - and then it started to yell." ~ Lissa Rankin

"At some point, all the horizontal trips in the world stop compensating for the need to go deep, into somewhere challenging and unexpected; movement makes most sense when grounded in stillness. In an age of speed, I began to think, nothing could be more more invigorating than going slow. In an age of distraction, nothing could feel more luxurious than paying attention. And in an age of constant movement, nothing is more urgent than sitting still." ~ Pico Iyer

"Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate." ~ Carl Jung

"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom." ~ Viktor Frankl

"Whatever the irritant is, the actual source of your irritation is far deeper than that. You can tell that that's the case whenever your response to a minor irritant is out of proportion." ~ Gary Zukav

"Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity." ~ Pema Chödrön

"Rub your eyes and look again at Love with Love." ~ Rumi

"The time will come when, with elation you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror, and each will smile at the other's welcome, and say, sit here. Eat. ... You will love again the stranger who was your self. Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart to itself, to the stranger who has loved you all your life, whom you ignored for another, who knows you by heart. ... Take down the love letters from the bookshelf, the photographs, the desperate notes, peel your own image from the mirror. Sit. Feast on your life." ~ Derek Wallcott
