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

What Do You Stand For?

What do you take a stand for?

Courage comes in many forms. In Hollywood, courage involves evildoers and daring
deeds. In real life, rescue workers, police, and the military have the courage
to lay their lives on the line for someone else or a cause. Even for those of us
who live life on a much smaller stage, courage is no less important. The world
and the future can be scary. Fear of failure, fear of change, and fear of taking
a chance can be enough to keep us in bed all day if we let them. Do you live
bravely or do you often look for the easy way out? Next time you're faced with
two choices, choose the bolder. As this becomes more natural, you can be sure
that you'll do the right thing when called upon. Stand up for your values. Stand
up for your goals. Stand.

When everything is clean-clear in your own mind,
nobody can create obstacles for you.-Lama Thubten Yeshe
