The greatest revelation

We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.

***

Trust your heart if the seas catch fire, live by love though the stars walk backward.

***

For whatever we lose (like a you or a me),
It’s always our self we find in the sea.

***

To be nobody but
yourself in a world
which is doing its best day and night to make you like
everybody else means to fight the hardest battle
which any human being can fight and never stop fighting.

~ E.E. Cummings
