Quotes About Centering
Centering in Pottery, Poetry, and the Person by M.C. Richards states that centering may foster inner healing. Richards talks about how the struggles of centering are your struggles to accept your nature and to resolve opposites in a single experience.
Here are some quotes from the book:
“Wisdom is a state of total being, in which capacities for knowledge and for love, for survival and for death, for imagination, inspiration, intuition, for all the fabulous functioning of this human being who we are, come into a center with their forces, come into an experience of meaning that can voice itself as action.”
“When we act out of an inner unity, when all of ourselves is present in what we do, then we can be said to be ‘on center.’”
“We can receive only what we already have! We can become only what we already are! We can learn only what we already know! It is a matter of realizing potentialities. It is not a matter of ‘adding to’ but of ‘developing,’ of ‘evolving.’ We contain in ourselves a world of capacities, of possibilities, which the outer world summons forth, speaks to, releases.”
“It takes all one’s courage to be the person one is, fulfilling one’s odd and unique possibilities.”
