"Living a life of fulfillment that offers something of value to the world starts with radical self-knowledge, self-awareness and self-acceptance. Our task is to be who we are at the deepest level of being."
~Oriah Mountain Dreamer, "The Dance"
"A major life transition is an opportunity for transformation - a transformation into an entirely new life. A transition is an opportunity for spiritual rebirth if we see clearly and respond wisely."
~Robert Brumet, "Finding Yourself in Transition"
"Jesus said, “Remain in me, as I remain in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing. . . . As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love.”
—John 15:4–5, 9
