Soulmaking ...

The art of soulmaking is taking our lives in our hands and – with all the love and discernment we can muster – gently whittling away the parts that don’t resemble the True Self. In spiritual whittling, though, we don’t discard the shavings. Transformation happens not by rejecting these parts of ourselves but by gathering them up and integrating them. Through this process we reach a new wholeness.
from When the Heart Waits by Sue Monk Kidd
