Wednesday of Hope – Always Dream

We dream to give ourselves hope. To stop dreaming – well, that’s like saying you can never change your fate.

– Amy Tan, The Hundred Secret Senses

Wednesday of Hope – The Power of Goodness

A good deed doesn’t just evaporate and disappear. Its consequences saturate the universe and the goodness that happens somewhere, anywhere, helps in the transfiguration of the ugliness.

– Desmond Tutu

Wisdom of the Guest

The Guest

The Guest is inside you, and also inside me;
You know the sprout is hidden inside the seed.
We are all struggling; none of us has gone far.
Let your arrogance go and look around inside.

The blue sky opens out further and farther,
The daily sense of failure goes away.
The damage I have done to myself fades.
A million suns come forward with light.
When I sit firmly in that world.

–Kabir

Wednesday of Hope – Deep Trust

Deep trust in life is not a feeling but a stance that you deliberately take. It is the attitude we call courage.

– David Steindal-Rast

Wednesday of Hope – Take Heart

Courage comes from the French word, Coeur, which means “heart.”
In order to travel from clinging to letting go, we have to “take heart.”
The heart is the seat of the will. 
This is the place God awakens,’
the place where the gentle uprooting takes place.

– Sue Monk Kidd

Wednesday of Hope – To Risk Opening

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was greater than the risk it took to blossom.

– Anais Nin

Wednesday of Hope – Joy from the Cliffs of Despair

For happiness one needs security, but joy can spring like a flower even from the cliffs of despair.

– Anne Morrow Lindbergh
