At times it looks like as if old conflicts and struggles come back to haunt you like hungry ghosts.
Don’t believe in them, but listen to them.
Not to the stories they keep on telling, but to the tears, to the screams of rage.
Listen so deeply that only listening remains in you.
Then, you will find a peace in the middle of the storm, an unshakable stillness that will give you the courage to overcome anything you see.
Openness to your own wounds, a soft vulnerability that becomes your safest shield.
