Stella Excerpt

“We can understand here the concept of impermanence; that nothing tangible lasts forever. All that is eternal is the Soul. Everything else is in a constant state of change; of rebuilding or recreating, dying or changing.”

 

Takeaway Gem

“It is no easy way to navigate such heart aching or life changing darkness that visits you and I and all of us. But you, just like me and those around us, have the ability within if we are open and willing to accept it and take that gentle, patient loving action.”

 

From darkness to Light, we go.
