Words of Wisdom

"If you are attached to being the lover or the giver, as opposed to giving when giving is needed or loving when loving is needed, then you are bound to be depleted.  I must always maintain my own core or I have nothing to give from." 
~Rev. Amy Wiggins

"Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment.  Cleverness is mere opinion, bewilderment intuition." ~Rumi

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more." ~Melody Beattie

"Curving back within myself I create the universe again and again." ~The Bhagvad Gita

"There's more to life than increasing its speed." ~Gandhi

"All plans for the future are useless if you have no capacity to fully live in the present." ~Deepak Chopra

"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?  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 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 the permission to do the same.  As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."  ~Marianne Williamson, made famous by Nelson Mandela in his address as the new President of South Africa
