Sparkle like gold

The incredible story of the golden Buddha statue that was masked and forgotten beneath a layer of clay for centuries until a piece of the coating chipped off to reveal the glorious golden artifact that it truly was, has been told and retold. It is an important tale that symbolizes our rediscovery of our inner worth. Joni Mitchell sang the truth: “We are stardust. We are golden.”

“Just because you are soft doesn’t mean you are not a force. Honey and wildfire are both the colour gold.”

~Victoria Erickson

“Just as in the story of the Golden Buddha, sooner or later the chisels of life’s trials pick away at our armor. And this dismantling is wonderful, for there is no greater tragedy than hiding behind something that we are not, living a life that is less than we are. The universe is continuously working to remind us of our identity and our purpose. If we are living a life that is untrue to our soul’s calling, our inner guide will not let us rest until we step back onto our true course.” Alan Cohen, Dare to be Yourself

Shine As You Are

“Divine Love is alive and awake, fully present in every aspect of your life. It is who you are, expressing as you. At the moment of creation, you became God’s expression of love, free to show up in your own unique way. As you grow from the ups and downs of your life, the beauty of who you are is fostered, and who you are is a beautiful thing! As you express love, the Beloved constantly holds you in a relationship that is personal, indescribable and sacred. Your whole life is a Divine set-up, orchestrated to get your attention so that you might know the sweetness and the power of your worth. Messages come from a loving Universe. The breeze whispers, ‘Can you feel me? I notice you. You matter to me.’ The sun reminds you that you have your own light to shine. The beauty of nature pours itself into you, praising you so that you’ll remember you’re praiseworthy. You are Love’s great gift, just as you are. Your life and your love bless the world.” ~Rev. Jane Beach

“Never forget the three powerful resources you always have available to you: love, prayer, and forgiveness.” ~H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

“Personal transformation can and does have global effects. As we go, so goes the world, because the world is us. The revolution that will save the world is ultimately a personal one.” ~Marianne Williamson
