Bread Crumbs of Sacred Sunday

Every Sunday I read the weekly newsletter from Brain Pickings by Maria Popova. It's one of my sacred Sunday rituals.

One of the functions of art is to give people the words to know their own experience... Storytelling is a tool for knowing who we are and what we want.
— Ursula K. Le Guin
Because self-knowledge is the most difficult of the arts of living, because understanding ourselves is a prerequisite for understanding anybody else, and because we can hardly fathom the reality of another without first plumbing our own depths, art is what makes us not only human but humane.
— Maria Popova

Our spiritual journey in large part is finding a way to come home back into ourselves. Our body. Our hearts. And most importantly, the passionate stirring of creativity that gathers in the solar plexus and wishes to become ethereal.
