"...similar to the power of lust, or the realm of the flesh, anger is healing. To feel and express anger feels healthy. Anger creates appropriate boundaries with people who aren't supporting us or who aren't good for us to be around. Anger can flood the system with a sense of clarity and purpose. We sometimes know what we stand for and what we care about most about from the presence of anger. Anger protects us and often protects others we love and those who can't defend themselves. Anger, for anyone who has been silenced or made to feel insignificant, is a declaration that they actually matter. That their voice matters. That they are not to be silenced ever again. Anger in these situations is holy Anger in the face of injustice is an act of love. It's a statement of unifying ourselves with a stranger saying, "I won't let you be treated as I would not want to be treated myself." Anger can be motivating and unifying. As the mystic William Blake relates, "The voice of honest indignation is the voice of god."
Meggan Watterson, Mary Magdalene Revealed

"...we cannot believe in ourselves if we don't remember that we are worthy of that belief."

"...the real beauty lies in the achievement, not the attainment, of a goal. Trying to hold on to the achievement lessens the value of the achievement itself, and can even blemish it. The enjoyment is in the process and the celebration of the achievement and what it represents. It can never be recreated or reformed, because then it would be something new and different. In order to really achieve something, there is no attainment. It's gone the moment you reach the achievement."
Hillary Allen, Out and Back
