“You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. Meanwhile the world goes on. Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain are moving across the landscapes, over the prairies and the deep trees, the mountains and the rivers. Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again. Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination, call to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting – over and over announcing your place in the family of things.” — Mary Oliver Clouds, Geese Fly, Flight, Favorite Places, Article Th Goose, Moving Mountain, Poetry, Heavens Inspiration, Inspiration Leader

Wakan Tanka, Great Mystery, teach me how to trust my heart, my mind, my intuition, my inner knowing, the senses of my body, the blessings of my spirit. Teach me to trust these things so that I may enter my sacred space and love beyond my fear, and thus walk in balance with the passing of each glorious sun. - American Indian Lakota Prayer

JESUS | The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.[John 1:9] When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." [John 8:12]
This quote is exactly what I am dealing with in life right now. Learning to walk alone because truly you can never depend on anyone else. Nor can you trust anyone fully. Too many people have turned their backs on me in the past few years that now its time to do it all on my own ♥
Mary Oliver. You do not have to be good...You do not have to be good. Won't they stone me to death then? It's frightening. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. Oh, yes. Yes, I think I see that now. Like the Wild Geese.
