Anodea Judith, Ph.D.:  To come of age in the heart is to fall back in love with the world,

Anodea Judith Ph.D.

To find that our world is subject, not object;

To realize that, yes, the self is sacred, but so is the entire web of life.

In the realm of the heart, we reconstitute the archetype of sacred partnership:

Balanced, respectful and mutually enhancing.

Here we are inspired to act from passionate dedication,

Not spineless obedience;

To be repossessed by the sacred,

Rather than dispossessed by its lack;

To be pulled forward by an evolving vision from the future,

Rather than held back by the decaying pattern of the past.
