Caroline Myss

I love the OWN series, Super Soul Sunday.   It has exposed me to some of the most interesting and thought provoking authors and spiritual leaders - Marianne Williamson, Elizabeth Lessor, Reverend Ed Bacon, and Caroline Myss among others.  The show provides a platform for these great people whom otherwise do not get heard often enough.   I highly recommend it. 

On that note, here are a few beautiful thoughts by Caroline Myss, this week's guest.

"You cannot change anything in your life with intention alone, which can become a watered-down, occasional hope that you’ll get to tomorrow.  Intention without action is useless."

“I am convinced that the deepest desire within each of us is to be liberated from the controlling influences of our own psychic madness or patterns of fear. All other things—the disdain of ordinary life, the need to control others rather than be controlled, the craving for material goods as a means of security and protection against the winds of chaos—are external props that serve as substitutes for the real battle, which is the one waged within the individual soul.” 

"Faith is the power to stand up to the madness and chaos of the physical world while holding the position that nothing external has any authority over what heaven has in mind for you."
