Be True to Yourself

 

be true to yourself

“A tulip doesn’t strive to impress anyone. It doesn’t struggle to be different than a rose. It doesn’t have to. It is different. And there’s room in the garden for every flower. You didn’t have to struggle to make your face different than anyone else’s on earth. It just is. You are unique because you were created that way. Look at little children in kindergarten. They’re all different without trying to be. As long as they’re unselfconsciously being themselves, they can’t help but shine. It’s only later, when children are taught to compete, to strive to be better than others, that their natural light becomes distorted.”

― Marianne Williamson

Unstoppable

 

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds; your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be”.

–Patanjali

Autumn Dance

 

gingko leaves and wood spirit

“all of nature says “yes””
spring-summer-early fall, the leaves open to the light
collecting light for the tree
nourishing the trunk, the branches, me
collecting light for the roots
so when autumn and winter rains and cold comes
there is stored light in the roots
for the short days and long nights

The Magic Garden

 

“The sun is shining – the sun is shining. That is the magic. The flowers are growing – the roots are stirring. That is the magic. Being alive is the Magic – being strong is the Magic. The Magic is in me – the Magic is in me. . . It’s in every one of us.”

– Master Colin from The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
