Let your dreams take flight

Cultivate an air of mystery
Reveal your true self to those you love
Make a little mischief
Even the smallest wings can soar” – unknown
¨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, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn´t serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won´t feel insecure around you. We were born to 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 Williamson (Apparently Nelson Mandela used this quote in his inaugural speech, but Williamson is the original author)
“You Reading This, Be Ready
Starting here, what do you want to remember?
How sunlight creeps along the shining floor?
What scent of old wood hovers, what softened
sound from outside fills the air?
Will you ever bring a better gift for the world
than the breathing respect that you carry
wherever you go right now? Are you waiting
for time to show you some better thoughts?
When you turn around, starting here, lift this
new glimpse that you found; carry into evening
all that you want from this day. This interval you spent reading or hearing this, keep it for life —
What can anyone give you greater than now,
starting here, right in this room, when you turn around?” – William Stafford
“A child who lives with gentleness
will touch with gentle hands.
A child who’s understood
becomes someone who understands.
A child who lives with patience
learns a way to wait for things.
A child who’s taught to smile at life
is one who laughs and sings.
When children find acceptance,
that’s another trait they learn,
And children who are loved a lot
will give love in return.” – unknown
“The lesson of the beet, then, is this: Hold on to your divine blush, your innate rosy magic, or end up brown.” -Tom Robbins
