Our Deepest Fear

“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 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 Williamson

The Actual and the Ideal

"There are two things, the actual and the ideal.
To be mature is to see the ideal and live with the actual.
To fail is to accept the actual and reject the ideal, and to accept only that wich is ideal and refuse the actual is to be immature.
Do not criticize the actual because you have seen the ideal.
Do not reject the ideal because you see the acutal.
Maturity is to live with the actual but hold on to the ideal."
~ Derek Prince

A Birth?

"Art is a birth, and you can't go to a teacher and find out how to be born, you have to struggle until that image, the one that comes out of your need to create, emerges." ~Malcah Zeldes

"Behold, the former things have come to pass, now I declare new things; before they spring forth I proclaim them to you."
Isaiah 42:9 (NASB)
