A Quote by Caroline Myss on life, psychology, desire, soul, purpose, and meaning

I am convinced that the deepest desire within each of us is to be liberated from the controlling influences of our own psychic madness or patterns of fear. All other things--the disdain of ordinary life, the need to control others rather than be controlled, the craving for material goods as a means of security and protection against the winds of chaos--are external props that serve as substitutes for the real battle, which is the one waged within the individual soul.

A Quote by Caroline Myss on crisis, power, change, purpose, meaning, transformation, and life

It is a rare person who can pierce the veil between ordinarly life, consumed with matters of physical survival, and pursuit of the empowered path of purpose and meaning unless he or she is motivated by a crisis. Most often we require the failure of some system of power that we rely on before we take action.

A Quote by Caroline Myss on life, healing, mind, and health

Healing requires far more of us than just the participation of our intellectual and even our emotional resources. And it certainly demands that we do more than look backwards at the dead-end archives of our past. Healing is, by definition, taking a process of disintegration of life and transforming into a process of return to life.

A Quote by Caroline Myss on life, power, experience, and negotiation

As I have often written, power is the fundamental ingredient of the human experience. Every action in life, every thought, every choice we make--even down to what we wear and whether we are seating in first class or coach--represents a negotiation of power somewhere on the scale of power that constitutes life.

You never really know how or when your life is going to change, and that's for the best.

A Quote by Caroline Myss

How deeply do I want to see this?
The more mystical I can perceive, the faster I heal.
I have to perceive "truth" because if I stand in what's true, my only option is negative emotion.

A Quote by Caroline Myss on womenswisdom, intention, and action

You cannot change anything in your life with intention alone,
which can become a watered-down, occasional hope
that you'll get to tomorrow. Intention without action is useless.

A Quote by Caroline Myss on divine, life, service, and love

Our goal while on this earth is to transcend our illusions and discover the innate power of our spirit.  We are responsible for what we create, and we must therefore learn to act and think with love and wisdom and live in service to others and all life.

A Quote by Caroline Myss on silence, mind, fear, contemplation, reflection, meditation, and grace

Contain your experience with the divine so that it does not escape you but rather shapes you.  Be silent.  Silence will help you avoid engaging in the games of competition and illusion that regularly seduce us in the outside world.  Silence also helps you avoid distraction.  It helps focus the busy mind---the mind that always has to be doing something, thinking something, the mind that always has to be otherwise engaged lest it become introspective and allow the soul's voice to override its own.  The silence I am describing is a silence that you use to contain the grace you receive when you enter the Castle of your soul.  This quality of silence allows you to engage in discernment.  You carry this silence within you, even when you are with others.  It allows you to hold your center amid the chaos of your life; it keeps you clear so that you do not do or say things you will regret or make decisions out of fear.

A Quote by Caroline Myss on silence and grace

Silence is a learned practice that requires far more than just not talking.  Not talking is not silence; it's just not talking.
