"The wise person never resents but welcomes all difficulties for he knows that when they fall upon him he has the most favorable of all opportunities to accomplish the seemingly impossible. At the hour of struggle, when the odds seem to be the most pressing, the greatest of all feats may be performed -- that of conquering the elements of dissension within one's own nature. Such a feat is magical in its stimulating effect upon others.
It is in the intangible realms that lie the potent causes which cast their shadows as effects upon the physical world. Let men look therefore to their thoughts, for it is there that the great wheel of the Law turns in its unerring course. Let us purify the gaping wounds of discord by exerting ourselves as never before to bring into being thoughts embodying the elements of love and sympathy towards all beings. Let us show that understanding sympathy which is the essence of brotherhood." -- Martyn Witter
"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

"There is a pool of Love . . .
that holds all things that are in existence . . .
this pool’s waters are so pure . . .
it washes away illusions . . .
of time and space . . .
. . . with this being said,
what is there to know ? . . .
for even knowledge bows ! . . .
. . . to honor love. . .
