Life finds its purpose and fulfillment in the expansion of happiness.
- Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

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.
- Marianne Williamson

A great paradox of life is that while we must create plans for our future in order to live a joyful life, simultaneously, we must graciously accept whatever events life actually throws against us. If we fail to plan, we merely bob helplessly - like a cork on the sea of life. If we resist whatever life delivers to us, we create untold misery for ourselves. Only by charting our course, and then continuously recharting that course in response to the events of life, can we achieve success and happiness.
