Just for a moment
And allow ourselves to believe
That we are perfect
Not just enough
For that suggests a limitation in itself,
Clothed in potential and possibility
Howling with joyous abandonment
For the richness of the landscape
That frames our life
Dancing every step
Whether winds are quiet or ferocious
Days turbulent or still
Just for a moment

The grace to be a beginner is always the best prayer for an artist. The beginner’s humility and openness lead to exploration. Exploration leads to accomplishment. All of it begins at the beginning, with the first small and scary step … Wherever you are is always the right place. There is never a need to fix anything, to hitch up the bootstraps of the soul and start at some higher place. Start right where you are.
― Julia Cameron from The Artist’s Way
The secret of change is to focus all of your energy… not on fighting the old… but on building the new.
The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.
― Barbara Kingsolver from Animal Dreams
Something amazing happens when we surrender and just love. We melt into another world.. a realm of power already within us. The world changes when we change. The world softens when we soften. The world loves us when we choose to love the world.
― Marianne Williamson from A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.
― Denis Waitley from Seeds Of Greatness
There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth…not going all the way, and not starting.
