“What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
"Fear not but be full of light and love." Ben Okri
"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition. To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Grandfather, Great Spirit, fill us with light. Teach us to walk the soft earth as relatives to all that lives.
Lakota Prayer- Native American
“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? 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.”
"Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared."
"Thou art Light. Let that Light shine."
"It is always sunrise somewhere. Eternal sunset." John Muir
"Your job is to shine and thus illuminate the world."
“There is a light that shines beyond all things on earth, beyond us all, beyond the heavens, beyond the highest, the very highest heavens. This is the same light that shines in our hearts.”
"The object of man is to make daylight shine through him."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"It is through you that the sun shines and the stars shed their lustre. You are in all and you are all."
"No day is more wasted than one without laughter."
"Being self luminous, you cause everything to shine.
Delighting in your own form, you fill the universe with delight.
Rocking with your own bliss, you make the whole world dance with joy.
He who, without hesitation views all of this tangible world as your form,
Having filled the universe with the form of his own self
Is eternally joyful. Why then the fear?"
