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.
Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.
Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we learned here.
In every community, there is work to be done. In every nation, there are wounds to heal. In every heart, there is the power to do it.
The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.
We are not held back by the love we didn't receive in the past, but by the love we're not extending in the present.
We can always choose to perceive things differently. You can focus on what's wrong in your life, or you can focus on what's right.
Dear God, Please send to me the spirit of Your peace. Then send, dear Lord, the spirit of peace from me to all the world. Amen.
The first step in forgiveness is the willingness to forgive.
Maturity includes the recognition that no one is going to see anything in us that we don't see in ourselves. Stop waiting for a producer. Produce yourself.
