"Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam!"

"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."-Nelson Mandela

A New Day

Today is a new day.

Clair feels like she has been in a cacoon for the last six years.
Whilst in this cacoon she has been literally turned into jelly.
In the last little while, all of a sudden there has begun to be a change inside her crystalis.
Things are starting to change.
Form is beginning to take shape.
Foundations are begining to grow.
New strength is found amongst the jelly.
The sides of the crystalis are starting to feel tight against new found wings.


Soon the bonds will break and the new Clair will emerge.
First slowly.
Already there are tears in the crystalis.
Vulnerablity fills the void.

Such real feelings and crazy understanding of what this process must feel like to a butterfly.
Feeling life at this angle is...dificult to explain.
Can only be felt and lived through.

New beginnings.
New feelings.
New standards.
New approaches to life, people, truth, relationships, the world.

All is quiet.
All is loud.
All is hard and soft.

Today is a new day.
