Food for thought

from the book, A Return To Love:

-"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 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."-

I wish you a lovely and warm weekend,
take care my dear friends and thank you for sharing this tea with me :))

Marrianne Williamson is one of my favorite authors too. When she had come on Oprah show I wanted to absorb every word she spoke. A great writer and a powerful speaker.

Beautiful. Awesome. And again something I want to preserve. I think I will just keep coming back here to read it. Thanx for these beautiful quotes and the beautiful pictures to go with it.

Dear Vinita and Vineeta :)

I keep reading these lines too from time to time, they are such a beautiful reminder.

Every time when I feel how I start to make myself smaller in a situation I think of this quote and feel how the positive energy grows again.

One day I will not have to read them anymore because I will be practising it completely, but till that time it is a lovely helpfull support :)

Big hug to you and take care,

with love, Sas
