Knotty Musings

Ideas, philosophies, and evil plots to take over the world through love hatched here.

I Am Enough

"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, 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 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

Nativity Display and Thought on Materialism

My girlfriend and I went to a nativity display at one of the local churches. This is the 13th year that they've done it. I have a nativity set I painted several years ago but I don't have a Creche. I think I'll do some looking around and see if I can't find one.

In light of the black friday tragedies yesterday, I hope that we will each take a little time to remember that material things are not what make those we love, love us in return. Time=love.
