“This is my simple religion.
There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophy.
Our own brain, our own heart is our temple.
The philosophy is kindness”
Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama
“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 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 fear,
our presence automatically liberates others”.
“When you adopt the viewpoint
that there is nothing that exists
that is not part of you,
that there is no one who exists
who is not part of you,
that any judgment you make is self judgment,
that any criticism you level is self-criticism,
you will wisely extend to yourself
an unconditional love
that will be the light of your world”.
