for the bright blue sky and the soft fog and the gentle rain,
for the tree veiled in the season's first frost,
for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."

and the whispered "I love you."

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 is not just in some of us; it is 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 God wants them to do,
because I notice it always coincides

smile your biggest smile, and cheer on God's music.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Each one prays to God according to his own light.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

A wise one said, "We are most like God when we forgive."
It is easy for us to blame, but hard for us to forgive.

is your own happiness.
Unconditional universal forgiveness is
the key to your own happiness.
