“But, as cries are absorbed into silence, as the sun always rises just when the night seems like it will never end, as the sky holds everything flying and everything falling, there is something indestructible at the center of each of us; though the pain of being transformed and rearranged while still alive often feels unbearable.” -Mark Nepo exert from The Book of Awakening: Having the Life You Want by Being Present to the Life You Have
