i just added this book to my little book widget -
'i will not die an unlived life.'
it's one of my favorites.
it's so funny cause as i did that i saw another
dawna markova book i gotta read!!! there's just no
end to really good books.
a friend recently returned this book to me. as i flipped
thru it this morning to things i underlined, these three
passages stood out for me.....
'crisis can force us deep enough to find out who we really are
and what we truly love, and it is here, where there are no
masks, no one else's values or beliefs, that passion lives.'
'...But the awareness of how the soul's great capacity for love,
the love that had been leaking out of my life for so long
was excruciating. to know how incomplete my loving had been
was agonizing - how i had limited it with all my stories that
loving was a thing, a commodity i could 'give' or not, had earned
'kurt wright, a consultant, said that the purpose of life 'is
to learn to love, to discover just how much of god's love
each of us can allow to flow through with no interference on our
learning how to love.
sometimes i just don't know if i'll ever get it down....
you start with yourself and go on from there.
and so i am starting with myself once again today......
