Into our words

If I always seek to pattern my life after another, mine is being wasted re-doing things for my own empty acceptance. But, if I live my life my way and only let the other [artists] influence me as a reference, a starting point, I can build an even higher awareness instead of staying dormant.*
Keith Haring

In the Celtic World from the earliest centuries, speech was viewed as our greatest strength, greater than any physical force. True words hold a mighty energy for change.**
Philip Newell

Our truest words
don’t just come from
anywhere;
they thrill forth from
humility,
accepting the wonder
of our life as
it is and as it
may become.

*From Keith Haring’s Keith Haring Journals;
**From Philip Newell’s Sacred Earth, Sacred Soul.
