775. I cry very easily. It can be a movie, a phone conversation, a sunset – tears are words waiting to be written. ~Paulo Coelho

Embrace sorrowful thoughts
for they sweep the house of your heart clean,
scatter the withered leaves,
and pull out the twisted roots,
preparing the ground for 
the
new shoots of joy.

Listen to your heart.
It knows all things,
because it comes from
the Soul of the World,
and it will one day return there.
~Paulo Coelho

Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more; the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will end. ~Isaiah 60:20  ✝

  1. Boy, is this a timely post for me today, Natalie. I woke up crying–partly out of joy that my son finally has found direction and is planning to move to New Orleans in the near future and partly out of motherly “angst” and the knowledge that he won’t be around much longer for wonderful discussions on literature, movies, theology and the like. Tears ARE cleansing and I’m letting them flow….and I’m journaling to capture my thoughts and feelings at this special time in our family’s life. Eu gosto Paulo Coehlo! Obrigado, Natalie! Beijos e abracos (oxoxoxo in Portuguese) ~ Laura

  2. Tears cleanse the soul.
    Sometimes I fight to keep my composure — using up a lot of energy in the process. But once I let go of my need to know why, to be in control, to be right and just have a good cry I feel so much better. I never understood why some people made themselves cry on purpose, but now it’s starting to make sense. It the release the eases all the pent up tension. The release is cleansing 🙂
