knee deep in weeds

notes on a simple life

tuesday || compassion and hope

“Something very beautiful happens to people when their world has fallen apart: a humility, a nobility, a higher intelligence emerges at just the point when our knees hit the floor. Perhaps, in a way, that's where humanity is now: about to discover we're not as smart as we thought we were, will be forced by life to surrender our attacks and defenses which avail us of nothing, and finally break through into the collective beauty of who we really are."
― Marianne Williamson
“Ego says, “Once everything falls into place, I'll feel peace.” 
Spirit says, “Find your peace, and then everything will fall into place.” 
― Marianne Williamson
“We can't look to the world to restore our worth; we're here to restore our worth to the world. The world outside us can reflect our glory, but it cannot create it. It cannot crown us. Only God can crown us, and he already has.” 
― Marianne Williamson
