We do this work to free ourselves: from the pain that we carry in our bodies; from the emotions that weigh us down; from the thoughts that hold us back.
We also do this work so that we can better care for those around us: our children, partners, siblings, parents, family, friends, neighbors, communities. As we create our own peace, we can offer it to them. As we heal ourselves, we expand our capacity to love more deeply.
Sometimes it will feel too hard to make the change and we choose to continue on as we are. But as it becomes more and more uncomfortable to leave things as they are, we will know that we are ready for the change and finally make the leap. This is when we RELEASE, and we are free.
