Grace Under Fire

Grace Under Fire


Sorrow prepares you for joy.
It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter.
It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place.
It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow.
Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.

– Rumi


You and I are the force for transformation in the world.
We are the consciousness that will define the nature of the reality we are moving into.

– Ram Dass
