"The Risk To Bloom", by Anaïs Nin

Updated: Sep 5, 2021

Every Sunday I send an email to the groups that take my online yoga classes on what I call "My Personal Zoom", and I usually add a poem or a quote that I will read in class. Today I opened again the incredible "The Book Of Awakening", by Mark Nepo, and found on page 161 these few lines by Anaïs Nin:

"And then the day came

when the risk to remain

tight in a bud was

more painful than the

risk to bloom"

The work of deep personal transformation is not easy, and it implies work, but it is totally worth it.

Check "The Book of Awakening, Having the Life You Want by Being Present to the Life You Have" by Mark Nepo clicking here
