Quotes:


It is the highest compliment when someone says they believe in you. Be inspiring by telling someone you believe in them. Barbara Monahan

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear isthat 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 WilliamsonA Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles"


“In every community, there is work to be done.
In every nation, there are wounds to heal.
In every heart, there is the power to do it.”  
 Marianne Williamson

If we learn to open our hearts, anyone, including the people who drive us crazy, can be our teacher.” Pema Chodron
