“Most people are afraid of suffering. But suffering is a kind of mud to help the lotus flower grow. There cannot be a lotus flower without the mud.” -Thich Nhat Hanh-

  1. Thank you so much for your honesty, Eric. Sometimes our wounded places need new dressing everyday…for me its a daily practice of surrender, self-compassion and sel-patience. Sometimes the need for forgiveness. You are a blessing and it is an honor to follow your blog and interact with you in this community. Love and light. 🌸
