SHINE!!! SHINE!!! SHINE!!!

9.25.2009

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."

This dark world needs light, I hope this inspires you to share or continue to share yours.

Peace, Love, & Blessings

Putting God First With A Little Prayer

9.25.2009

Hello, all. BeULuv here, this is my first post, I'm finally getting around to it, not enough time in a day. I figure I'll start off with sharing my favorite inspirational prayer and some visual inspiration.

A Little Prayer

Father help me to know myself-
what I am and what I can become.
Enable me to see the good in myself
and rejoice in it,
to see the flaws and change them.
Teach me to live with myself,
to accept myself.
Remind me
that becoming, what
you want me to be, is like cultivating a garden
than chopping down a forest.

And I don't know Beyonce's religion, this particular picture just inspired me. The way her head is down and the sunlight shining down on her looks to me, like she is in prayer in the presence of God. Her hair under the flower was a huge afro, this put me in the mind of a blooming flower. When I was finished it brought to mind this bible verse: And be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Rom 12:2)

Peace, Love, & Blessings
