“You were born with wings. Why prefer to crawl through life?”
“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity.”
“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.” — Nelson Mandela
We all have days that we feel a part of something bigger. Like we plugged into the power source and everything is running as it should.
Then we have the “other days”
We feel disconnected, powerless and isolated.
How far away we feel from a Higher Power and question its existence. We lose perspective. We begin to wonder what our purpose is, or perhaps, if we even have a purpose at all.
It is important to remember on days like these that the answers are inside of us.
Our connection to the divine has not gone anywhere, we just stopped listening. The power, the truth and the connectedness are always available to us when we need it. You will find it between the in breath and the out breath that still small voice whispering the answers if you’ll only stop to listen.
“I want you to be everything that’s you, deep at the centre of your being.”
