Lying in a Tree

Advice From A Tree

Stand up tall and proud.
Sink your roots into the earth.
Be content with your natural beauty.
Go out on a limb.
Drink plenty of water.
Remember your roots.
Enjoy the view!

Aum ~ Peace ~ Amen


Wise Words: Leonardo da Vinci


If you find from your own experience
that something is a fact and
it contradicts what some authority has written down,
then you must abandon the authority
and base your reasoning on your own findings.

Our Deepest Fear ~ Nelson Mandela speech, by Marianne Williamson



“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, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are 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.”

~Nelson Mandela Speech (written by Marianne Williamson)

That Wise Mirror Quote



I heart quotes.  After collecting them for many years I have amassed a collection that serves me quite well.  I share them via Facebook, twitter and here on my blog.  Sometimes I even share them in my yoga classes.
