“To be rooted is perhaps the most important and least recognized need of the human soul.”
In times of challenges, just like in a garden drought, our roots dig deeper into the soil, more secure in its foundation.
“You can’t think your way out of emotional difficulties” Etty Hillesum wrote in 1941, “that takes something altogether different. You have to make yourself passive then, and just listen. Re-establish contact with a slice of eternity.”
May we be blessed with foundations that secure us and allow our growth.
