Quotes can be powerful. They have the potential to shift our focus and make for a more mindful day. They can shift perspectives and remind us of how precious our lives are. They can be tools to help us gain whatever we are seeking. Here are some of my favourites that I come back to reread often that I hope will inspire and leave behind a little light.
“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.” By Marianne Williamson
“Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions, the gates of the soul open.” By B.K.S. Iyengar
“Have only love in your heart for others The more you see the good in them the more you will establish good in yourself.” By Paramahansa Yogananda
“You must be the change you want to see in the world.” By Mahatma Gandhi
