Awakening Rights

Let’s face it, life is short and no-one does you, like you! And today, more than ever I believe that –

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Recently, I came across the following from Mark Nepo called Awakening Rights and wanted to share it.


Awakening Rights

“We waste so much energy trying to cover up who we are
when beneath every attitude is the want to be loved
and beneath every anger is a wound to be healed
and beneath every sadness is the fear that there will not be enough time.
Our challenge each day is not to get dressed to face the world
but to unglove ourselves so that the door knob feels cold
and the car handle feels wet
and the kiss goodbye feels like the lips of another being
soft and unrepeatable.”

~ Mark Nepo, The Book of Awakening
