In life one cannot awaken often enough the sense of a beginning within oneself. There is so little external change needed for that since we actually transform the world from within our hearts. If the heart longs for nothing but to be new and unlimited, the world is instantly the same as on the day of its creation and infinite.*
Rainer Maria Rilke
When one is home in oneself, one is integrated and enjoys a sense of balance and poise. In a sense that is exactly what spirituality is: the art of homecoming.**
Trauma is anything that separates us from our true self.
In this way we may all understand ourselves to be working through trauma.
Rather than avoiding our trauma, facing it brings the possibility of reuniting with our heart, out of which come new beginnings.
Yes, we will need guides, but within each of us is the truest guide: ourselves. We only need to hear this true self beneath he others.
