Everything on heaven and earth, all the minutes before this moment... have prepared you for today. Use all that you know to make it perfect. It is the sum total of your life.

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.

When you are able to contain both the light and dark together, that is a very enlightening state. It means that you no longer have to choose one experience over another. You do not have to choose love OR hate, blame OR forgiveness, sadness OR joy, anger OR openheartedness. You are no longer polarized; no particular feeling boxes you in and keeps you from the light of true self. You then have access to the full range of human experiences you came into this life to embrace.

Kiss your life.
Accept it, just as it is.
So that those moments of happiness
you're waiting for don't pass you by.
Don't expect someone better, someone saner or more insightful or miraculously and infinitely wiser, to suddenly occupy your body no matter where you are.
Everything you need you already have. You are complete right now, you are a whole, total person, not an apprentice person on the way to someplace else.
Life can be cruel and terrible,
and anyone who expects to escape that fact is asking for a life at sea without storms.
~Harry Emerson Fosdick
All things divinely intended for my life must be made welcome - heart breaking, unfair and ugly are surely well deserved, but more than that, they make way for the truest truths and a love so impossibly beautiful it will outlast this soul for sure.
