“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, Talented and Fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest
the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us, It’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.”

- Marianne Williamson



“..Tell me about despair, yours,
and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear
pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese,
high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese,
harsh and exciting –
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.”


- Mary Oliver
Wild Geese



“With love you cannot bargain
There, the choice is not yours.
Love is a mirror, it reflects
Only your essence,
If you have the courage to
look in its face.”

- Rumi



“To the parched lips of those
who are willing to surrender
Love will bring the wine
That changes darkness into vision,
Cruelty into compassion,
And dust into precious incense.”

- Rumi
