Quote of the day

“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’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are 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 Williamson

New Patterns of Living Are Open to me


You must realize what is actually going on before you can effectively deal with it.
– Ralpha

When our fears, weaknesses and views about life are colored by low self-esteem or lack of self-worth, we are restricted. It seems as though we have a road map that leads to nowhere. What we don’t always realize is that we created the road. It is a reflection of what we think about ourselves. We measure the future by the errors of the past. We make agreements with ourselves or others, which we do not keep. We surround ourselves with people and situations that degrade, devalue and limit us. Then we question why we have no confidence. No matter what race we are or what other people think or say about us, the first limitations we must overcome are those we place on ourselves.
