Grief is a wound that needs attention in order to heal



"Grief is a wound that needs attention in order to heal. To work through and complete grief means to face our feelings openly and honestly, to express or release our feeling fully, and to tolerate and accept our feelings for however long it takes for the wound to heal. We fear that once acknowledged, grief will bowl us over. The truth…

A destination

"There is a mystery about rivers that draws us to them, for they rise from hidden places and travel by routes that are not always tomorrow where they might be today. Unlike a lake or sea, a river has a destination and there is something about the certainty with which it travels that makes it very soothing, particularly for those who've lost…

The Lie said to the Truth,



The Lie said to the Truth, "Let's take a bath together, the well water is very nice.

The Truth, still suspicious, tested the water and found out it really was nice. So they got naked and bathed.

But suddenly, the Lie leapt out of the water and fled, wearing the clothes of the Truth.

The Truth, furious, climbed out of…

Und der Mut ist so müde geworden

throw away the idea that healing is forgetting

 



throw away the idea

that healing is forgetting

the real result is no longer

reacting to old triggers

with the same intensity as before

the memories are still there

but they do not have

the same power over your…

"Black Cherries" by W.S. Merwin

12630713856?profile=RESIZE_584x

 

Late in May as the light lengthens

toward summer the young goldfinches

flutter down through the day for the first time

to find themselves among fallen petals

cradling their day’s colors in the day’s shadows

of the garden beside the old house

after a cold spring with no rain

not a sound comes from…

Fear can accumulate in our body, causing stress and tension..



Fear can accumulate in our body, causing stress and tension. Rest is a precondition for healing. When animals in the forest get wounded, they find a place to lie down, and they rest completely for many days. They don’t think about food or anything else. They just rest, and they are able to heal themselves quite naturally. When we humans become…

At a certain age, the light that you live in is inhabited by the shades...

 

At a certain age, the light that you live in is inhabited by the shades…I’m very conscious that people dear to me are alive in my imagination…These people are with me. It’s just a stage of your life when the death of people doesn’t banish them out of your consciousness, They’re part of the light in your head.'

One of my best memories of Christmas Eve ...

One of my best memories of Christmas Eve was when I was a young child of six or seven.

My father was visiting his uncle in the nearby village. When he returned, it was dark, and he wore his winter coat. He said he saw Santa Claus making his way over the road as he was visiting the…

My favourite fairy tale - "The Snow Queen"-

My favourite fairy tale - "The Snow Queen"-

'I can give her no greater power than she has already," said the woman; "don't you see how strong that is? How men and animals are obliged to serve her, and how well she has got through the world, barefooted as she is. She cannot receive any power from me greater than she now has, which…

“I see my beauty in you, I become a mirror...

“I see my beauty in you,

I become a mirror

that cannot close its eyes to your longing.

My eyes wet with yours in the early light.

My mind every moment giving birth, always conceiving, always in the ninth month, always the come-point.

How do I stand this?

We become these words we say, a wailing sound…

Happy Diwali!

Diwali symbolizes the victory of light over darkness and good over evil. The word "Diwali" itself is derived from the Sanskrit word "Deepavali," where "Deepa" means lamp or light, and "avali" means a row. People light oil lamps (diyas), candles, and decorate their homes with lights to signify the triumph of light, knowledge, and righteousness…

Today I am taking sides.

Today I am taking sides.

by Rabbi Irwin Keller

I am taking the side of Peace.

Peace, which I will not abandon

even when its voice is drowned out

by hurt and hatred,

bitterness of loss,

cries of right and wrong.

I am taking the side of Peace

whose name has barely been spoken

in this winnerless war.

I will hold Peace in my arms,

and share my body’s…

"I'm scared," said Pooh...

"Piglet?" said Pooh.

"Yes?" said Piglet.

"I'm scared," said Pooh.

For a moment, there was silence.

"Would you like to talk about it?" asked Piglet, when Pooh didn't appear to be saying anything further.

"I'm just so scared," blurted out Pooh.

"So anxious. Because I don't feel like things are…
