Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart

Sorrow prepares you for joy.

It violently sweeps everything out of your house,

so that new joy can find space to enter.

It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart,

so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place.

It pulls up the rotten roots,

so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow.

Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart,

far better things will take their place.

Journey

Journeys bring power and love back into you.

If you can’t go somewhere,

move into the passageways of the self.

They are like shafts of light,

always changing,

and you will change when you explore them.
