Everyday you're supposed to wake up, and go through sense organ cleansing rituals. [...] You clean your eyes, and to me that says "I'm going to see things clearly today". You clean your ears, "I'm going to hear things correctly today". It's all about having a healthy relationship with reality — Kathryn Flynn
It should really be the intention that we want to live with. The affirmations and the core values that we say, that we value. Because it will help us show up for the people who matter in the way that they deserve to. — Kathryn Flynn
