The Valley is the Place...

This may have to be my new life motto:
"Let me learn by paradox that the way down is the way up,
that to be low is to be high,
that the broken heart is the healed heart,
that the contrite spirit is the rejoicing spirit,
that the repenting soul is the victorious soul,
that to have nothing is to possess all, 
that to give is to receive,
that the valley is the place of vision."

From The Valley of the Vision: A Collection of Puritan Prayers

Quoted by Trevin Wax, Holy Subversion, page 127
