Words feed me, free me, comfort, uplift and heal me. I've been saving my favorites in books, handwritten over the years and thought that perhaps in sharing them, not only am I preserving them for myself, but perhaps others may also find healing in them as I have.
I bow to the one who signs the cross. I bow to the one who sits with the Buddha. I bow to the one who wails at the wall. I bow to the OM flowing in the Ganges. I bow to the one who faces Mecca, whose forehead touches holy ground. I bow to dervishes whirling in mystical wind. I bow to the north, to the south, to the east, to the west. I bow to the God within each heart. I bow to epiphany, to God’s face revealed. I bow. I bow. I bow.
