by Florence Ondré

When the moment presents an opportunity to speak from your heart and say things that may be difficult, therein lies the release from words and feelings crowding; confusing and chaotic; crying for space to fly from you to unburden you.

As you set free from the cage of your being that which is aching and weighing, your spirit lightens and, no matter the outcome or response from others against your truth, no thing diminishes your act of courage; your standing in your own light.

The treasure which can then shine brightly is a fullness of you in cessation of shadow.

This was sent to me by a friend. Thought I’d share.

A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose.

Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil.

In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she (more…)
