Excerpts From the Book
“Let no fear mask the beauty of your inner calling,
and no doubt deflate the buoyancy of your purpose.
Stand tall in the nature of your soul.
With this body you shall walk the earth,
but with your heart you shall walk the sky.”
“...This dimension is an amplifier of experiences and life lessons. The whisper in our heart leads us like an intuitive wind through the uncertainty of this world, drawing us nearer to who we really are. If we let it, it will guide us into the adventures we were born to experience. Our path is personal and unique. It is when we lean into each moment of our life, and fearlessly live what we love, that our whisper turns into a thunder of change in the world. Empowered in our authentic purpose, embodying our gifts and lessons, humbled by and grateful for our transformation, we become attuned to Life’s deepest music…"
“...Wherever you are on your journey, be the pioneer of your own calling. The compass in your soul is your true inner guide. The wings of your heart are your highest inspiration, and the innate compassion deep in your being is your most intimate lover. Let nothing in this world dim your light or rattle your enthusiasm. Walk your own steps, as no path would better express your purpose than being fully and truly who you are...”
From: "Come Closer Still”
Come, rest within my heart,
where not even silence can conceal you.
Let me plunge into your beauty
in the lucid wells of longing,
dive as deep as stillness goes,
until you breathe me softly,
into the silky space of love.
Compassion is the sweet sound
of sacred bells in your heart,
the intoxicating aroma
of ancient flowers in your soul.
It is the glow of your higher nature,
and the guardian of your dignity.
Surging like an instinct from the deep,
in its compelling presence
all else will vanish.
It may not always be your first choice,
but once chosen,
it will be your only one.
From: “The Human Artist”
Nothing can give form to visions
better than the loving hands
of the heart that dreams them into being.
No one is worthier of singing this song
than the voice of the one
who carries its music in her heart.
The human artist
is her own unfinished painting.
She works to complete herself
through each brushstroke of her choices.
Her true audience
is the very life she paints
through the lessons of her soul.
From: “Empowered Self”
Do not judge what needs to be loved,
nor shame what needs your compassion.
Love especially those parts in you
that are most difficult to love.
Even your shadows long for your light,
and in them are your hidden treasures.
From: “Choice of Peace”
Let peace be the rising breath
in this thirsty space among us,
surging from our inner nature
to become our chosen way of life.
Let the winds of empathy carry
deeper listening between our hearts,
as the silent stars stand witness
to the way we grow to honor
the time and space we share together.
