Belleruth Naparstek feels like family to me (but I have a feeling thousands of people feel that way too.)

I’ve taken Belleruth’s downloads with me everywhere. I was listening to a download of Belleruth’s trauma CD at the precise moment when my mother died.

What more can I say? Belleruth gets me through any kind of day.

National PTSD Awareness Day is this Thursday June 27th, and as we focus on pe...

“this sounds a little simple, but I think if we didnt know illness we wouldnt really feel the exhiliration of good health. and if we never cried, we wouldnt be able to recognize joy. in a way, the good only gains value when it is contrasted with the bad”
Priscilla Warner, The Faith Club: A Muslim, A Christian, A Jew--Three Women Search for Understanding

“I thank you, God, who lives always, and Who, as i awaken, has in mercy returned my soul to me; we can ever trust in you.”
Priscilla Warner, The Faith Club: A Muslim, A Christian, A Jew--Three Women Search for Understanding

“And I think that if you are lucky enough to give and receive love, then you can be happy in the face of suffering. I was talking to a friend about this and we decided that maybe heaven is just And that heaven exists on a day-to-day basis within people. When they give and receive love, that's a little slice of heaven.”
Priscilla Warner, The Faith Club: A Muslim, A Christian, A Jew--Three Women Search for Understanding

“You will lose someone you can’t live without,and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.”
Anne Lamott

“For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.”
Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

“It pays to keep an open mind, but not so open your brains fall out.”
Carl Sagan

“As we practice meditation, we get used to stillness and eventually are able to make
friends with the quietness of our sensations.”
Sharon Salzberg, A Heart as Wide as the World: Stories on the Path of Lovingkindness

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
Ernest Hemingway
