“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.” ~John Milton

“Maybe the most difficult stranger to welcome is the one who lives inside us.” ~Mirabai Starr, from God of Love: A Guide to the Heart of Judaism, Christianity and Islam

How do you deal with those parts of yourself that you don’t like? It’s only through welcoming them in that we have the opportunity to transform them.

How could you better welcome the stranger inside of you?
