“What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.” – Ralph Waldo 


Vulnerability is the doorway to love, and gives us access to true strength. For many of us, self-protective armor is usually unconsciously erected at a young age. Although we think it will help us, it is actually the cause of much of our adult suffering, because it seems to separate us from the very love we desire. Awareness of it is a big step toward freedom. 


The difference between stumbling blocks and stepping stones is how you use them. 


I’ve discovered that letting go of self-armoring is necessary for happiness and well-being. Usually we're trained to think that to be open and vulnerable is a weakness, but it is actually just the opposite. When we open and surrender to the love within, we have access to the true strength of Spirit

Sometimes in life, a darkness may behold our lives, and in times of weakness, we ask "why?", but without some darkness, how could we appreciate the shining light.
