Friday Favorite Quote

“I was learning what every spiritual guide and clergy knows, that at transitional times of life, marked by life passages and important holidays, people come out of their shells for more light… And on a grander scale, at the universal life junctures such as marriage, birth, and death people often express willingness to deepen their lives in ways that may have never interested them before. This is so because at these transitional times our normal defenses are lifted and we are shown a more expanded way of being.”

– Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, With Roots In Heaven, pp. 280-281
