Heart treasure

“Connais-toi pour t’ameliorer” (“Know yourself to improve yourself”).*
Alain de Botton

When you get past making labels for things, it is possible to combine and transform elements into new things. Look at things until their import, identity, name, use, and description have dissolved.**
Corita Kent

We give up on our potential long before it gives up on us.

Let us fill our hearts with good and hopeful and generous words from many places and many people every day.

May we wrap these in a daily practice of our own invention and be open to see what emerges in thousands of new actions and words.

What if we made this our exploration for the upcoming new year?
