I have discovered that it is indeed often that which we reject and split off from our conscious awareness - our masked and projected fears and shame, the unattended and neglected pain in our hearts, the opportunity to shed old belief systems for new and more deeply loving ones, the invitation to embrace and come to better know ourselves and others, all this and much more - that holds the key to greater understanding, compassion, peace, wisdom, and love than we have ever known before.
May we all be increasingly blessed with the acceptance of that which we have rejected. May we allow grace and love to grow within ourselves and our lives and what it is that we bring to the world.
Bless us all on our journeys ~ Molly

Grace is more than gifts. In grace something is overcome; grace occurs in spite of something; grace occurs in spite of separation and estrangement. Grace is the reunion of life with life, the reconciliation of the self with itself. Grace is the acceptance of that which is rejected.
