{Quote of the Week.}

 
“Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we were in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger, spiritually, than we were before. Whenever we grow, we tend to feel it, as a young seed must feel the weight and inertia of the earth as it seeks to break out of its shell on its way to becoming a plant. Often the feeling is anything but pleasant. But what is most unpleasant is the not knowing what is happening. Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting, holding its breath, unsure about what the next step should be, eventually become the periods we wait for, for it is in those periods that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life and that, in all probability, a new level of the personality is about to be revealed.”Alice Walker, Living by the Word

  1. This is one of those quotes where I would respond with an excessive amount of emoji because I'm not quite sure exactly what to say, I just know that all of this is true. And suddenly, you've cleared up 2013 for me.

  2. This is exactly what I've been going through for the past few months!! It's such a relief to know & believe that great change is happening without me even knowing it. Thank you for this!!
