“Maybe you are searching among the branches, for what only appears in the roots.” ~Rumi
We so often look up, out, away from ourselves for answers that can truly only be found deep within. What answers are you seeking “out there” when you really need to look “in here?”
“Within you, there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at anytime and be yourself.” ~Hermann Hesse
How well do you know that sanctuary within yourself? It’s one of your most valuable resources!
“Whenever you are creating beauty around you, you are restoring your own soul.” ~Alice Walker
Beauty comes in many forms—from music to visual art to the written word to a well-cooked meal to a kind word or deed.
What kind of beauty will you create today? In offering that beauty to the world, you will find that you are also restoring your own soul.
“Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.” ~Henry Ward Beecher
Are you cultivating the garden of your soul to bring forth the fairest blossoms possible? If so, cultivating a spirit of gratitude will go a long way toward the flowering you desire!
“Soul calls us to ground ourselves in the blood, sweat, and tears of ordinary life. Rather than rising above these things, it invites us to find life and meaning in the midst of them.” ~David G. Brenner
So many think of spirituality as something that is opposed to ordinary life that causes us to transcend the everyday trials, challenges, and monotony we face. But our soul is not calling us away from ordinary life, but deeper into it.
Soul wants us to enter ordinary life fully and completely so that we find richer life and meaning in the very midst of our everyday, ordinary lives.
