Passionate Colors Newsletter ~ #11 ~ Sacredness Care of the Soul: Guide for Cultivating Depth & Sacredness

"We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken away from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms—-to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way."
~ Victor Frankl, Man's Search For Meaning


Each day is a miracle. Even the most ordinary day is a celebration of love when you decide to approach life as an endless chance for new possibilities.

As poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning once said so beautifully, our daily life is "earth crammed with heaven."

"Your daily life is your temple and your religion. Whenever you enter into it take with you your all." ~ Kahlil Gibran

When you look at life as a religion, you can turn every day events into memorable experiences. Being in the moment, life bursts with passionate colors.

"Every day is a god, each day is a god, and holiness holds forth in time.” ~ Annie Dillard

Think of yourself as the star in your own movie. Fill your scenes with appreciation and the knowledge that anything that goes wrong today, will be fine tomorrow. That life is a series of highs, lows, and in-betweens. All these experiences celebrate the opportunity for growth, love, and learning.

"To the poet, to the philosopher, to the saint, all things are friendly and sacred, all events profitable, all days holy, all men divine." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

The morning sun on your face, the cool whisper of the wind that rustles the trees, the smile of a loved one, a hot fudge sundae. All events, all days are holy.

Every moment matters. As gifted lyricist Stephen Sondheim wrote in Any Moment, "Best to take the moment present, as a present for the moment."

"When a man, a woman, see their little daily tasks as integral portions of the one great work, they are no longer drudges but co-workers with God." ~ Annie Besant

Celebrate each day. There is divinity in every action you make.

"To be alive, to be able to see, to walk… it’s all a miracle. I have adapted the technique of living life from miracle to miracle." ~ Arthur Rubinstein
