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

- Proverb

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up.
The most certain way to succeed
is always to try just one more time.

just a block of wood.

Just get people to stop reading them.

and not just accept conventional terms
and the conventional way of doing things.

There is nothing to say.
There is nothing to think.
There is nothing to feel.
The River of Life just flows.
