-Mark Nepo. His brilliance + poetic craft get me every time. He has a way of explaining very complex feelings, in simple, tangible, digestible ways. Thankful.
“When thrust into any situation over our head, our reflex is to fight with all our might the terrible feeling we are sinking. Yet the more we resist, the more we feel our own weight + wear ourselves out. At times like this, I remember learning to float. Mysteriously, it required letting almost all of me rest below the surface before the deep would hold me up. Finding our FAITH is very much like that— resting enough of ourselves below the surface until we find ourselves UPHELD.”
