I send you in this email a suit of “virtual emotional armor.” You will gird yourself with this emotional armor and thus protected will conduct yourself courageously as you take the necessary steps required to forge a new life. You will emerge on the other side of this trial safe, sound and very self-assured.

my favorite passage from the color purple is when shug says to celie:

“here’s the thing. the thing i believe. god is inside you and inside everybody else. you come into the world with god. but only them that search for it inside find it. i believe god is everything that is or ever was or ever will be.”

just finished blankets. thompson closes with luke 17:20-21:

“once, having been asked by the pharisees when the kingdom of god would come, jesus replied, ‘the kingdom of god does not come visibly, nor will people say “here it is” or “there it is”,  because the kingdom of god is WITHIN you.'”
