Words of inspiration

I just received an email from Soul Flares, with these quotes that speak to embracing one's own dear self while creating.

Anyhow: from my standpoint the only thing--if you're some sort of artist--is to work a little harder than you can at being who you are: while if you're an unartist (i.e. aren't) nothing but big&quick recognition matters. (sic)
E. E. Cummings, September 7, 1959, from a letter to his daughter

When the demons become unmasked, you may feel you are going mad or doing something wrong, but in fact you have finally begun to face the forces that keep you from living in a loving and fully conscious way.
Jack Kornfield, from A Path with Heart (with thanks to Steve Marston)

Happy Beading!
