loss

A Quote by Wayne Muller on loss, pain, challenges, and self-knowledge

When we come close to those things that break us down, we touch those things that also break us open.  And in that breaking open, we uncover our true nature.

There are different wells within your heart.
Some fill with each good rain,
Others are far too deep for that.

A Quote by Zane Grey on greatness, loss, grief, weakness, faith, and dreams

Recipe for greatness — To bear up under loss, to fight the bitterness of defeat and the weakness of grief, to be victor over anger, to smile when tears are close, to resist evil men and base instincts, to hate hate and to love love, to go on when it would seem good to die, to seek ever after the glory and the dream, to look up with unquenchable faith in something evermore about to be, that is what any man can do, and so be great.

Zane Grey (1875 - 1939)

A Quote by Jennifer Welwood on experience, aloneness, loneliness, connection, fear, courage, loss, gifts, fleeing, welcoming, and non-duality

Willing to experience aloneness,
I discover connection everywhere;
Turning to face my fear,
I meet the warrior who lives within;
Opening to my loss,
I am given unimaginable gifts;
Surrendering into emptiness,
I find fullness without end.

Each condition I flee from pursues me.
Each condition I welcome transforms me
And becomes itself transformed…

A Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke on dove, serenity, loss, being, abyss, infinite, rilke, mitchell, and erika

Dove that ventured outside,        flying far from the dovecote:
housed and protected again,     one with the day, the night,
knows what serenity is,              for she has felt her wings
pass through all distance and fear       in the course of her wanderings.

The doves that remained at home,     never exposed to loss,
innocent and secure,               cannot know tenderness;
only the won-back heart              can ever be satisfied: free,
through all it has given up,                to rejoice in its mastery. 

Being arches itself                 over the vast abyss.
Ah the ball that we dared,     that we hurled into infinite space,
Doesn’t it fill our hands            differently with its return:
heavier by the weight             of where it has been.

Rainer Maria Rilke (1875 - 1926)
