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

Dream in Color

As some of you know, I am in the process of putting a CD together. This is one of the tracks that will appear. I have found it inspiring as I try to lead change in my community.

Dream in Color lyrics by Victor Wooten

Some say we're living in the last days
entering the last fase

on this planet called earth

But when i close my eyes
i see the brightness of a new dawn
a barrier to go beyond
and i feel hopefull for what is worth

but still ....

some say girl
you're just too optimistic
don't you know the world is going to end
we're just gonna be statistics

i don't know
when i see a rainbow its a product of the storm
as the sun shines down to keep us warm
and the winds of change blow

You might call that a dream
But when i dream
i dream in color oh yes i do


is the future cut in half
should i cry or should i laugh
or should i continue on my path

but then i stop and think about

and as i sit and watch my children grow
i wanna let my kids know
that they got sometin' to life for
can you feel me


some say girl
don't you read ever your scriptures
it's gonna be fire and brimstone
it's not gonna be a pretty picture

but (ah) i say...........

i see a halo and it's a shining down on me
as truth has come to set us free
from the madness we know

You might call that a dream
But when i dream
i dream in color oh yes i do

so dream of peace
dream of love
dream of equality but still
that ain't enough

gold in the light that's in your vision
and than truth that is on you mission
and the locks that are on you prison
will fall away and you be free one day

You might call that a dream

when i dream
when i dream
when i dream
when i dream
when i dream
when i dream

You might call that a dream
but when i dream
i dream in color oh yes i do

black white brown yellow too
but when i dream
i dream in color
