Tuesdays Are For Inspiration

Maybe what the world needs right now is a lot of people confident of the light inside of them. Tuesday is as good a time to start as ever.


We light the candle for the rest of the world
who think darkness is all there is.
So they can see our faces and know we're still here.
So they will come close and we will listen to their stories and know their names.

So they will come close and know there is still hope.
They will discover darkness doesn't rule everywhere. 
-Mike Glenn


With my lightnin' bolts a-glowin'
I can see where I am going.
-Arcade Fire "Wake Up"


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 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.
-Marianna Williamson
