I love books. They can give me an escape into someone’s story, offer me solutions, teach me things, make me laugh, and so much more. The words I read can be a gift to my heart and mind, offering a different perspective from which to see the world.
Since I love books so much, I’ve decided that each Friday, I will share a quote from a book I am currently reading. I may share thoughts on it or I might just give you the quote and let it simmer. Perhaps the words will speak to you and somehow be integrated into your own life. The goal is simply to challenge myself and others to be open to new ways of thinking, and also to new ways of healing by the power of words.
Today I want to share with you a quote from Michael A. Singer’s work The Untethered Soul: the journey beyond yourself. I will not offer my own thoughts this time around, except to say that I myself am still wrestling with the truth and depth of his words. The quote reads:
The alternative is to enjoy life instead of clinging to it or pushing it away. If you live like that, each moment will change you. If you are willing to experience the gift of life instead of fighting with it, you will be moved to the depth of your being.
Until next time,
