"A tender heart and a brave soul light up the path for others
with the kind of luminosity that heals and enlivens.
So don't worry about being good.
Instead, discover how both good and bad live within you.
Deeply accept the shadows even as you seek the light.
Believe in change.
Take full responsibility for who you are and what you want.
And from such forthright wisdom, your goodness will prevail
and your kindness will blossom & your heart will be healed."
~ Elizabeth Lesser, The Seeker's Guide
