The Temptations of Power

The object of power is power.
— George Orwell

The Search for Worthiness

“There are no prerequisites for worthiness.”
— Brené Brown

The Denial of Reality

“A kind of light spread out from her. And everything changed color. And the world opened out. And a day was good to awaken to. And there were no limits to anything. And the people of the world were good and handsome. And I was not afraid any more.”
― John Steinbeck, East of Eden

Compassion is What We Need

Compassion is not a relationship between healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognized our shared humanity.
— Pema Chödrön
