“We Were Made For These Times”

…To display the lantern of soul in shadowy times…
to be fierce and to show mercy toward others;
both are acts of immense bravery and greatest necessity…
Struggling souls catch light from other souls
who are fully lit and willing to show it…

~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes ~

A Prayer by Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Roderick Maclver

Roderick Maclver

Refuse to fall down
If you cannot refuse to fall down,
refuse to stay down.
If you cannot refuse to stay down,
lift your heart toward heaven,
and like a hungry beggar,
ask that it be filled.
You may be pushed down.
You may be kept from rising.
But no one can keep you from lifting your heart
toward heaven
only you.
It is in the middle of misery
that so much becomes clear.
The one who says nothing good
came of this,
is not yet listening.

~ Clarissa Pinkola Estés ~
