"The martyr is a man who has made a decision strong enough to be proved by death.

The solitary is a man who has made a decision strong enough to be proved by the wilderness: that is to say, by death. For the wilderness is full of uncertainty and peril and humiliation and fear, and the solitary lives all day long in the face of death. Hence it is clear that the solitary is the martyr's younger brother.

It is the Holy Spirit Himself Who makes the decision that segregates martyrs and solitaries in Christ."

~ Thomas Merton

God loves us for who we are and gives us the courage to change. When we are able to love the “real me” and accept our own idiosyncrasies, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.

I dream, I have angels wings, and I fly all over town in the sky
this world, used to bring me down until now
I fly
I dream I sleep upon the clouds, so warm as I wrap the cotton blanket around
this world,, couldnt realy bring me down now
Cuz I fly
And you help me, my life
yes you and I will never die
I dream Jesus takes me to the Father
and I kneel before him with humble heart
this world doesnt bring me down anymore
Cuz I Fly
And He has me, my life
Yes He gave you and I
is there more I could ask, is there something Im missing, why doesnt everyone feel the same as me
is there something I could ask for, what am I missing
Cuz I dream, I have angels wings and I fly all over town in the sky
and this world used to bring me down until now
I fly, fly, fly, fly, fly
I fly, fly, fly, fly, fly, fly, fly, fly

About Me

Therefore, dear Sir, love your solitude and try to sing out with the pain it causes you. For those who are near you are far away... and this shows that the space around you is beginning to grow vast.... be happy about your growth, in which of course you can't take anyone with you, and be gentle with those who stay behind; be confident and calm in front of them and don't torment them with your doubts and don't frighten them with your faith or joy, which they wouldn't be able to comprehend. Seek out some simple and true feeling of what you have in common with them, which doesn't necessarily have to alter when you yourself change again and again; when you see them, love life in a form that is not your own and be indulgent toward those who are growing old, who are afraid of the aloneness that you trust.... and don't expect any understanding; but believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it.”  ~ Rainer Maria Rilke
