I am beyond grateful for the incredible journey I'm on with the most remarkable clients one could ever hope for. In each session, they display unwavering courage as they delve into the depths of their souls, confronting their deepest fears and anxieties. These beautiful souls, without hesitation, step into the arena, ready to confront the pain of family secrets, the mistaken identities forged in the crucible of trauma, the coping mechanisms they've clung to, and the myriad illusions that have shrouded their subconscious and conscious minds.
Witnessing someone embark on the profound quest to rediscover their authentic selves at a deeper, more intimate level is breathtaking. I feel immensely privileged to be immersed in this vital work, one of the most blessed careers on Earth.
Allow me to leave you with four profound quotes that resonate deeply with the essence of this journey:
"Compassion is not merely a connection between the healer and the wounded; it's a sacred bond between equals. Only when we've navigated our own darkness can we stand alongside others in theirs. True compassion emerges when we recognize our shared humanity." - Pema Chödrön
"Only in the presence of compassion can people summon the courage to face their own truths." - A.H. Almaas
"The arena belongs to those who dare, whose faces bear the marks of sweat, dust, and blood. They stumble, err, and come up short, but they strive valiantly for a worthy cause. Their triumphs are monumental, and even in failure, they dare greatly. Their place is never with the timid souls who never taste victory or defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt
"The very first word in the 12 Steps Recovery Program is 'We.' This entire journey is a 'WE' program—what we can't accomplish alone, we can achieve together."
May this post ignite a spark of inspiration within you to become the change you wish to see in the world? Let us all make 2024 a year of profound healing and transformation.
Remember, we are just one decision away from a better life.
I wish all my incredible clients and friends a joyous holiday season and a New Year filled with boundless possibilities in 2024.
With warmth and love,
Paul Noiless and his faithful companion, Sharona
