Forgiving does not erase the bitter past.
Despite everything, life is full of beauty and meaning.
Not one single atom opposes us.
To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic.
Willing to experience aloneness, I discover connection everywhere; Turning to face my fear, I meet the warrior who lives within.
Drinking our cup is not simply adapting ourselves to a bad situation and trying to use it as well as we can.
Courage is not the towering oak that sees storms come and go; it is the fragile blossom that opens in the snow.
Oft hope is born when all is forlorn.
