Favorite Quote:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some; it is in everyone.

And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically liberates others."
Marianne Williamson

Do you fit the stereotype?
Have you been fooled into thinking you are always right?
Time is tight.
“Drastic times call for drastic measures.”
Right is right
But are you right in the way that is right.
Sleep tight and “don’t let the bed bugs bite.”
They will crawl up your skin.
Ten times – exactly – before you begin to check this out again.
Sleep soundly and pretend.
Pretend that we are the same.
War is peace and peace is war.
No it’s not.
What do I know about war
Or peace?
Find something to hold on to and stick to it.
That is the best thing you can do.
