slowly and lightly

It's dark because you are trying too hard.
Lightly child, lightly.
Learn to do everything lightly.
yes, feel lightly even though you're feeling deeply
Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them.
So throw away your baggage and go forward.
There are quicksands all around you, sucking at your feet,
trying to suck you down into fear and self pity and despair.
That's why you must walk so lightly.
lighly my darling

Aldous Huxley  Island

    1. I love this quote and wanted to place it where I could easily find it. X

  2. Thank you. I had been feeling as though the quicksand was pulling me down and these words lifted me up. "Learn to do everything lightly" - so important.


I hope that we can have a conversation about creation. Thank you for taking interest. x
