"This is not a journey from nowhere to nowhere.
This is a process. Life is a process.
It is a process with purpose and meaning.
It is a function of the Universe.
It is the Present Action of an Eternal Activity."
~ Neale Donald Walsch

~ Christos Lightweaver

"True evolution consists in learning to make use of words,
either spoken or written, with a divine end in mind,
in other words to use elements of the Word
solely to create what is right, good and beautiful."
~ Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov
"God is love; God is light; God is truth.
To these great synonyms, I add another:
When it is civil, God is power. The power belongs to God,
and the proper role of the civil leader is merely to be a conduit
and to steward that power as God's agent.
Merely! What a paradox! To exercise temporal power
with civility is to undertake a role of great glory,
and it can only be undertaken with genuine humility."
~ Dr. Scott Peck, M.D., 'Civility Rediscovered'
“Out beyond ideas
of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field; l'll meet you there.”
~ Rumi (the poet of love)
"Our worst 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 so brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?' Actually, who are we not to be?
You are a child of God: Your playing small doesn't serve
the world. There is nothing enlightening about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God 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."
~ Marianne Williamson's quote from her 1992 book, 'A Return to Love'
