“Heal the World / Give Up on Being Perfect”
“The miracle of healing … is simply the decision to shift our perceptions of the people and the experiences surrounding us. None of us has greater healing power than anyone else. Some practice the healing process more often, however.
The one absolute in every day for everybody is that there will be an opportunity to offer a healing gesture to someone or some situation. Just knowing that we can improve the world we live in by a tiny thought or action gives the most mundane of days real meaning. We are equal in our ability to move us all closer to home.
If we look at our experiences from this perspective, it will change how we see every minute of our lives. We’ll even begin to look for opportunities to offer healing. Knowing that all of us benefit through the gestures of any one of us inspires our willingness to participate in the miracle.” (Daily Meditations for Practicing The Course, Karen Casey)
“The inner self of every human waits patiently until we are ready;
Then it extends an invitation to enter the luminous mystery of existence in which all things are created, nurtured, and renewed.
In the presence of this mystery, we not only heal ourselves, we heal the world.” (Deepak Chopra, Power, Freedom and Grace: Living from the Source of Lasting Happiness)
“The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.” (Anna Quindlen)
“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your heart.
Who looks outside, dreams.
Who looks inside, awakes.” (Carl Jung)
