Find that center point
in the stillness of your breath
I feel as if every hardship from my entire life
has been preparing me for now,
for this time and space that we are living in...
yet sometimes I feel like my toolbox is empty...
The following words from noted author Diane Ackerman
came to me this past week
and I immediately felt as if I had been saying them all of my life,
they help me to find that center point
and give voice to how I strive to live...
"I will not dishonor my soul with hatred,
but offer myself humbly as a guardian of nature,
as a healer of misery, as a messenger of wonder,
as an architect of peace."
