I don’t have many words right now.

But I read this today and liked it.

“Healing is about opening our hearts, not closing them.  It is about softening the places in us that won’t let love in.  Healing is a process.  It is about rocking back and forth between the past and the fullness of the present and being in the present more and more of the time.  It is rocking that creates the healing, not staying in one place or another.  The purpose of healing is not to be forever happy; that is impossible.  The purpose of healing is to be awake.  And to live while you are alive instead of dying while you are alive.  Healing is about being broken and whole at the same time.”
