SEEK UNION OVER SEPARATION
“Beliefs separate. Loving thoughts unite.”
— Paul Ferrini
Our ego focuses on how we are different from the rest of the world. We connect with soul when we experience how we are the same.
Any time you separate yourself from other people or from situations, you know your personality is in control. At such times, shift your perspective to build connection and you will move into soul.
“As a holistic being you shatter the illusion of your separateness and reveal your connection to everything. This empowers you in a way that the ego-driven self could never contemplate.”
— Wayne Dyer

“A house is no home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as for the body.”
-Margaret Fuller (1845)
A home is more than a place of shelter. It is a place of comfort, a place of peace. This is where we can take refuge from the world, where we can relax, and where we can grow. A home can be a “safe environment” where we can learn without fear of criticism, and where we can explore and express our feelings. The person, or people, inside that space is what makes a house a home.
