When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life.
Jean Shinoda Bolen
The more you judge, the more you will feel different and on the outside.
Sometimes the urgency of our hunger blinds us to the fact that we are already at the feast. To accept this can change everything; we are always home, never exiled.
We all belong here equally… Just by being born onto the earth, we are accepted and the earth supports us. We don’t have to be especially good. We don’t have to accomplish anything. We don’t even have to be healthy.
I believe every inch of America is sacred, from sea to shining sea. I believe we make it holy by who we welcome and by how we relate to each other. Call it my Muslim eyes on the American project. “We made you different nations and tribes that you may come to know one another,” says the Qur’an.
Where you belong is where you choose to constantly choose to show up.
Belonging: It’s not quite love and it’s not quite community; it’s just this feeling that there are people, an abundance of people, who are in this together.
We are lonesome animals. We spend all our life trying to be less lonesome.
