Everything's not lost

Lyrics and music by Coldplay

when I counted up my demons
saw there was one for every day
with the good ones on my shoulders
I drove the other ones away

Quote from John O'Donohue

"No one but you can sense the eternity
and depth concealed in our slitude.
This is one of the lonely things about
tndividuality. You arrive at a sense
of the eternal in you only through
confrunting and outpacing your fears.
The truly lonely element in lonliness
is fear. No one else has access to
the world you carry around within yourself-you
are its custodian and entrance.
No one else can see the world the way you see it.
No one else can feel your life
the way you feel it. Thus it is impossible to
ever compare two poeple because each
stands on such different ground.
When you compare yourself to others, you are
inviting envy into your consciousness;
it can be a dangerious and destructive
guest. This is always one of the greatest
tensions in an awakened or spritual life,
namely, to find the rhythm of its unique
language, perception, and belonging.
To remain faithful to your life requires
commitment and vision that must be constantly renewed."

A Blessing of Solitude (which I think is also from John O'Donohue)

"May you recongize in your life the pressence, power and light of your soul. May you realize that you are never alone, that your soul in its brightness and belonging connects you intimately with the rhythm of the universe. May you have respect for your own indivduality and difference. May you realize that the shape of your soul is unique, that you have a special destiny here, that behind the facade of your life there is something beautiful, good, and eternal happening. May you learn to see yourself with the same delight, pride, and expectation with which God sees you in every moment. In the name of the father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen."
