only a fixed quantity of each resource -
a limited amount of food, of money,

Put some distance between yourself

Distance in space or time
always creates a new perspective.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

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

A sense of humor... is needed armor.
Joy in one's heart and some laughter on one's lips
is a sign that the person down deep
has a pretty good grasp of life.
- Hugh Sidey

We travel, some of us forever, to seek
other states, other lives, other souls.

succeed in knowing themselves -
in finding themselves.

Some people stay for awhile,

They awaken us to a new understanding,
leave footprints on our hearts,

the balance between being of service -
both to this generation and to generations yet unborn -

Without play, one becomes old and dry.
Without service, life becomes meaningless.
