[The wise and lovely Kusha Alagband joon celebrating her 42nd birthday today].

“Purity and innocence are the true strengths in this world of ours. It is strength to live in a world like this and remain pure of heart, it is strength to live in a world like this and retain innocence. These are things that the world wants to take away from you, that experiences tend to alter and attempt to redefine. The wild ones aren’t the defiled ones— the wild ones are the pure ones, the innocent ones. It takes a true wildness to retain these things through the fire and through the storms. It takes a real wildness to remain in the wild— not contorted and maligned by circumstance and experiences. And it takes power to stand up and to choose what experiences we allow to take root or to even come into our lives.” Kusha Alagband

 

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” Matthew 5:8
