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 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.

let us be good to ourselves and each other
Brilliant, we should be the one's who bring the light into the World, just as we see life as the individual who had to live through the many obstacles put before him.

Obstacles so huge, but not so huge as the little boy with his youth and wisdom can overcome. The boy who sees so much of the beauty of the World. A beauty, others can only dream of.

When I was a boy, I dreamed of a World, that people could live in, a place where there is no fear. Maybe a place full of trust and love for one another no matter who we may be. I still dream of that place, maybe it is heaven.

A World of abandon, A World without the inner fear, a World of inner Peace.

it will come to us all,

ste

Here is one I just read from 'Crucial Conversation'.

One healthy prayer would be like

"Lord please forgive him for committing a sin different than mine".

Thanks Leosha for openning this topic.

so many years ago, i came across a book by krishna murti called, "think on these things". he is, or was, an eastern philosopher. so much from that book has influenced me. obviously, it was non-christian in its background, but it spoke so much of what i have since come to believe and articulate in so many ways. i hope i still have that book somewhere, otherwise, i will buy it again. it was a strong, but indirect influence on my bridgebuilder devotion/theology. look it up, i believe it will offer insight on how to think on some things.
