What we reflected upon in the week ending August 21st

#friendship

Perhaps intimacy is the ability to be fragile and vulnerable.  You can love someone very, very much and still not be able to be intimate with them.  Judy T

According to the teaching of the Buddha, in true love there is no place for pride. Thich Nhat Hanh

In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you. Buddha

Love your neighbour as you love your coffee (Seed group wisdom)

#purpose

Create a clearing in the dense forest of your life and wait there patiently, until the song that is yours alone to sing falls into your open cupped hands and you recognize and greet it.  Only then will you know how to give yourself to the world so worthy of rescue.   Martha Postlethwaite

You need to find what is genuinely yours to offer the world before you can make it a better place…. The offering of that gift—your true self—is the most you can do to love and serve the world. And it is all the world needs.   Bill Plotkin – Soulcraft

If you want the moon, do not hide from the night.  If you want a rose, do not run from the thorns.  If you want love, do not hide from yourself.  Rumi

Is it not true that somewhere deep down in the silence of our troubled hearts, we have always looked for God’s coming? Yet … we need only say our yes to who we are … we need simply to become more responsive to the secret yearning of our heart.  Johannes Beptist Metz –  The Advent of God 

May I have the courage today to live the life that I would love, to postpone my dream no longer, but do at last what I came here for and waste my heart on fear no more.  John O’Donohue
