A Quote by Thomas Merton on thomas merton, writer, social critic, monk, caution, freedom, liberation, and condemn

"If a writer is so cautious that he never writes anything that cannot be criticized, he will never be able to write anything that can be read. If you want to help other people you have got to make up your mind to write things that some men will condemn."

Thomas Merton (1915 - 1968)

A Quote by Lena Lees on push-through, kuan yin, chakras, solar plexus, meditation, spiritual practices, spirituality as a focus, and liberation

"The pain in those chakras is meant to be felt; experienced. You are going to feel it (the sadness, and despair) move. It's part of the "push-through". The energy in the solar plexus, especially, needs to move...Balance. Practice. Meditating upon my form. These are three excellent spiritual practices to put my teachings in place. I want people to know that spirituality is a focus, a commitment, not a punishment. It's liberating."

A Quote by Jack on pain, responsibility, suffering, and liberation

There is a point where pain becomes so much that we hold others responsible for our pain. What we may not realize is that only we can climb the mountain path to our own liberation. As impossible as it may seem, it is work only we can do.

We can only hope that noone else descends on us and declares themselves responsible for liberating us from our own pain. Only when we are responsible for our own transcendence do we discover the deep courage to midwife birth to our own joy.

A Quote by Raphie on media concentration, threat, liberation, spirit, water, and pipes

We are in an age of media consolidation and concentration and, yes, threatened, but also liberated information flow; and since flow of information is to spirit what water is to life, we'd best think about how to keep the pipes free and unclogged.
