"If I were to ask you what is the thing that you desire most in life this afternoon, you would say a lot of things off the top of your head, most of which you wouldn’t believe but you would think that you were saying the things that I thought you ought to think that you should say. But I think that if you were stripped to whatever there is in you that is literal and irreducible, and you tried to answer that question, the answer may be something like this: I want to feel that I am thoroughly and completely understood so that now and then I can take my guard down and look out around me and not feel that I will be destroyed with my defenses down. I want to feel completely vulnerable, completely naked, completely exposed and absolutely secure. " - Excerpt from The Sound of the Genuine by Howard Thurman
The Veiled Lady - Joseph Stella
As your body ages with time, your soul patiently waits for the time that you aline with your true purpose & complete the lesson your soul is currently occupied with. Until your current lesson is complete, your soul will stay stagnant, & your body will continue to age until dust. Aline with soul, & lessons will be fluid & time, pointless.
