Welcome To The Continuous Dream Of...
Susannah Indigo

There are 948 million aspen trees in Colorado, each one spinning
toward gold tonight. Sacred space, state of grace, hold me
safe on the border of free falling darkness. Seasons
change; friends remain. Numbers are important
things in this world; aspen leaves; days;
tears; trees; one more year.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond

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 is 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'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
                                  Inaugural speech
