Quotes by Jalaja Bonheim  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Paradoxically, we achieve true wholeness only by embracing our fragility and sometimes, our brokenness. Wholeness is a natural radiance of Love, and Love demands that we allow the destruction of our old self for the sake of the new.”
Jalaja Bonheim

“A priestess is a woman who lives in two worlds at once, who perceives life on earth against the backdrop of a vast, timeless reality. Whether or not she is mated to a human partner, she is a woman in love, wedded to being, to life, to love it self. Having offered herself, body and soul, in service of spirit, she mediates between matter and spirit, between human and divine realms. She may or may not be sexually active, but she will always honor sexual energy as a link to the source of life itself.”
Jalaja Bonheim, Aphrodite's Daughters: Women's Sexual Stories and the Journey of the Soul

“A priestess is a woman who helps others connect to the divine so they can heal and/or actualize their soul's unique path.”
Jalaja Bonheim

“All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle.”
St. Francis Of Assisi, The Little Flowers of St. Francis of Assisi

“Paradoxically, we achieve true wholeness only by embracing our fragility and sometimes, our brokenness. Wholeness is a natural radiance of Love, and Love demands that we allow the destruction of our old self for the sake of the new.”
Jalaja Bonheim

“Come out of the circle of time And into the circle of love.”
Rumi
