“It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble, how hopeless the outlook, how muddled the tangle, how great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.” -Emmet Fox

I appreciate the imagery of a cave, for I feel it represents a feeling of being trapped or imprisoned. So many people live in this place…in a self-made cave, frozen in place and afraid to leave…unaware of the beauty and love that truly surrounds them. It is not possible for another to extinguish your light or take away your joy…only you can do that.

When we remove these faulty barriers, break down our self imposed limitions, and decide to move past whatever trouble we are holding onto, we open ourselves to unimaginable beauty and open ourselves to the freedom and love that has been there all along.
