"People need to weep about what has happened to them, to rail and scream, and talk and write about it until they get to a place where they say, 'Yes that did happen to me, but that's it."
"Recognising the purpose of human existence is to relinquish everything that has become 'second nature' to us, by revealing to ourselves what is our 'first nature'. It is our 'second nature' to go into whatever the patterns of the past might be... serious challenges in life, such as diagnosis, death, divorce, drought, debt, despair confront us with the opportunity to let go of these patterns and discover a deeper, more eternal, more authentic part of ourselves."
"Peace is not a passive, wishy-washy state of acceptance. It is a state of being in which we are able to embrace every moment, regardless of its challenges, with a quiet mind and open, compassionate heart."
