We are all meant to shine, aschildren do. We were born tomake manifest the glory ofGod that is within us. Its notjust in some of us; its ineveryone. And as we let ourown light shine, weunconsciously give otherpeople permission to do thesame. As we are liberated fromour own fear, our presenceautomatically liberates others. Marianne Williamson
I asked for strengthand God gave me difﬁculties to make me strong. I asked for wisdom and God gave me problems to solve. I asked for prosperity and God gave me brawn and brains to work. I asked for courage and God gave me dangers to overcome.I asked for patience and God placed me in situations where I was forced to wait. I asked for love and God gave me troubled people to help. I asked for favors and God gave me opportunities.

Live a good life.If there are gods and they arejust, then they will not care howdevout you have been, but willwelcome you based on thevirtues you have lived by.If there are gods, but unjust,then you should not want toworship them.If there are no gods, then youwill be gone, but will have lived anoble life that will live on in thememories of your loved ones.Marcus Aurelius
Love bears all things, BELIEVES all things, Corinthians HOPES all things,ENDURES all things.
John Keats - Addressed to Haydon Great spirits now on earth are sojourning; He of the cloud, the cataract, the lake, Who on Helvellyn’s summit, wide awake, Catches his freshness from Archangel’s wing: He of the rose, the violet, the spring, The social smile, the chain for Freedom’s sake: And lo!- whose stedfastness would never take A meaner sound than Raphael’s whispering. And other spirits there are standing apart Upon the forehead of the age to come; These, these will give the world another heart, And other pulses. Hear ye not the hum Of mighty workings? Listen awhile ye nations, and be dumb! Yosemite 2001

Mexico Trek 1999 Peace to You Relationships arepositive, mutually supportive, healthy, creative, abundant
It is easier to be a "humanitarian" than to render your own country its proper due; it is easier to be a "patriot" than to make your community a better place to live in; it is easier to be a "civic leader" than to treat your own family with loving understanding; for the smaller the focus of attention, the harder the task. - Sydney J.

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one deﬁnitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in ones favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”Athens 1999 - W. H. Murray, The Scottish Himalayan Expedition
