As Jung famously said, “One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”

“What is most beautiful in virile men is something feminine; what is most beautiful in feminine women is something masculine.”
~ Susan Sontag

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” ~ Viktor Frankl

“We are stronger than things are terrible.” ~ Jordan Peterson

“When emptiness is possible, everything is possible. Were emptiness impossible, nothing would be possible.” ~ Nagarjuna

  • Here’s to dancing with harmonious love of the exhilaration of achieving balance. The constant shifting of alignment to stand on our two feet against the chaos. To sway and bend without breaking away from the core of who we are. Let’s keep dancing sister 🙌💃❤🌈
