Speaking of the Winter Solstice . . . “But now the light slowly slips into the depths of the cave, begins to open our eyes … We are being pulled out, into the open … The season of soft revelations is upon us.” John Fridinger
“The humble man receives praise the way a clean window takes the light of the sun. The truer and more intense the light is, the less you see of the glass.” Thomas Merton, New Seeds of Contemplation
“Mackenzie, evil is a word we use to describe the absence of good, just as we use the word darkness to describe the absence of light or death to describe the absence of life.
Both evil and darkness can be understood only in relation to light and good; they do not have any actual existence. I am light and I am good. I am love and there is no darkness in me. Light and Good actually exist.
So, removing yourself from me will plunge you into darkness. Declaring independence will result in evil because apart from me, you can draw only upon yourself. That is death because you have separated yourself from me: Life.”
from The Shack by Wm. Paul Young
“Mack, if anything matters then everything matters. Because you are important, everything you do is important. Every time you forgive, the universe changes; every time you reach out and touch a heart or a life, the world changes; with every kindness and service, seen or unseen, my purposes are accomplished and nothing will ever be the same again.” from The Shack by Wm. Paul Young
“I think everything in life is art. What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone, and how you talk. Your smile and your personality. What you believe in, and all your dreams. How you drink your tea. How you decorate your home. Or party. Your grocery list. The food you make. How your writing looks. And the way you feel. Life is art.” Helena Bonham Carter
