“so strove i with wonder — how to fit the image to the sphere... high fantasy lost power and here broke off, and as a wheel in a smooth motion whirs, my will and my desire were turned above by love that moves the sun and all the stars.” — paradiso 33, dante
“our goal should be to live life in radical amazement… get up in the morning and look at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted. everything is phenomenal; everything is incredible; never treat life casually. to be spiritual is to be amazed.” — rabbi abraham joshua heschel
“ludlow street, nyc. 2011/2012. can’t remember. i was coming off of years of dancing and unsure what to do with myself. i was going through the motions, without fully committing to anything. the thing is, it’s taken almost 6 years to start to listen in again. to start to commit fully, to move forward with certainty knowing that i’m being guided. as soon as we start to define the timing of things, we SLOW the process down. we start to take lengthy detours without realizing that we’re going the wrong way! give yourself time to let emotions and question move through you and and excite you. these things are coming up to guide you to where you need to be; don’t rush the process... trust that everything’s happening exactly as it should, and in perfect time.” — @vzbree
