Breathing Lessons (Poetry)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:32PM
Description: After the Sixth Day tells the story of one spirit living in a world that it's trying to understand. At some point on the journey, a longing is awakened for another world that is both familiar and unknown. This story is uniquely told through poetry with sincere and powerful emotion. Trinka's "notes" reveal what we all soon realize; through interaction with the world, the spirit is tested, awakened and strengthened. ~~

“So when you inhale and exhale, notice your breath and realize God is dwelling in your chest.”
Trinka Polite, After the Sixth Day: Notes from a Spiritual Journey

“I do not need to love you to prove that I love myself!!”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

“My mother said I broke her heart...but it was my integrity that was important. Is that so selfish? It sells for so little, but it's all we have left in this place. It is the very last inch of us...but within that inch we are free.”
Alan Moore, V for Vendetta

“If you do not tell the truth about yourself you cannot tell it about other people.”
Virginia Woolf

“You cannot find peace by avoiding life.”
Virginia Woolf

“If there is one thing I can pass on from my humbling experiences in life, thus far, I will tell you this, the next time someone tells you "the absence of expectations is the absence of disappointment, do not listen. Have expectations. Keep them great. It'll be a very bumpy ride. You'll even get bruised, sometimes very badly. Sometimes, you'll come to an abrupt halt or even fall off your ride. But you'll grow. And if you do not grow, you do not live.”
