Number Ninety Six

Pain is a path to truth.  It refracts light to reveal things not otherwise seen.  Pain reveals the invisible ties, the vast network of energy that connects everything.  In the heart of pain and loss is love.  By running from pain, we run from love.  By avoiding pain, we lose the pathways to connection.  In the heart of pain is a moment when the universe -- and our place within it -- finally becomes visible.

Number Ninety Five

Beauty has one purpose: to dissolve whatever holds us separate -- from each other, from every fractured rock that makes the earth, from every star in the sky. Beauty is the breath that joins us. Beauty is the dream -- in this dark sleep -- of a place where every rock, every planet, every star, every soul collides to make the next, more true and perfect version of itself.

Number Ninety Four

Joy teaches as much as pain.  Joy -- the passionate living of this moment -- is the window through which can be glipsed a soul's essence; a soul's purpose.

Joy is not bought, and there is no price to pay later.  Joy is not found; it is entered as one enters the moment.  It is held as one holds a child.

Joy is a path made of the now that leads to a center -- a center that always holds, always is there, always tells the truth.
