For 2018

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Joyful Emptiness----

The beginning of all paths and the foundation of all ascents is to open yourself to receive from Above.

And how do you receive from Above?

By being empty -- because a full vessel cannot receive, while an empty vessel has a hollow to be filled.

That is why we must run from depression; because a depressed person is so filled with his own self-pity, there is no room left to receive anything, no opening for life to enter. (I might add if you suffer from depression there is help out there for you - seek it).

But a humble, open spirit is vibrant with joy.

Kind of interesting - a new sland if you will.
