“You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.”
From Wild Geese by Mary Oliver
Great spiritual teachers throughout history have emphasized the importance of having compassion for ourselves as well as others in order to live authentically. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
