Mastery

retreat_108.jpg"Anything you do from the soulful self will help lighten the burdens of the world.

Anything. You have no idea what the smallest word, the tiniest generosity can cause to be set in motion.

Be outrageous in forgiving. Be dramatic in reconciling.

Mistakes? Back up and make them as right as you can, then move on.

Be off the charts in kindness. In whatever you are called to, strive to be devoted to it in all aspects large and small.

Fall short? Try again. Mastery is made in increments, not in leaps.

Be brave, be fierce, be visionary. Mend the parts of the world that are within your reach. To strive to live this way is the most dramatic gift you can ever give to the world."

Clarissa Pinkola Estes
American Author, Poet and Psychologist
