please forgive me Pele and Flash. I just love the quote and thought maybe it will also find echo in some of you...shine onCassandraOur deepest fear is not that we are too weak. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful in a way we cannot even imagine. It is the light inside us not the darkness that frightens us the most.We ask ourselves what right do I have to be brilliant, beautiful, talented and loveable?As a matter of fact, what right do you have not to be?There is nothing enlightened in putting yourself down so that other people would not feel insecure. The more we let ourselves shine, we give, without noticing it, the right for others to do the same. The more we get free from our fears, our presence will free others from fear.Nelson Mandela.

Posted:Hey cassandra!!!This is very cool.Check the situation. My wife had just called me. She is a floral manager for a grocery store. She has only been a manager for about 2 yrs. (fairly new) Shes awesome! She is the best designer that they have out of all their stores. She knows how to manage her dept. People that have been managers for yrs call her for advice and also to ask how to do paperwork and how to cut thier grosses and getthier numbers. Anyway, the VP of floral operations called her and told her that they have a merchandizer position open. They are essentially the boss of a group of managers. They help them set up their deptments, they help them when their sales are down with action plans..yadda yadda yadda...The VP tells her that she needs her to put in her application by Friday, because they will need someone by next week. Well she calls me all excited. But Her one major flaw is self confidence. She feels shes too young, and that she cant do it. Basically scared, flettered, but scared. She gets a call and puts me on hold. Im waiting, and i pull up HOP, and i read your post.When she comes back on the phone, i read the qoute toher, and she LOVED IT! And it made her feeel that she has the skills and gave her the confidence to go for it!!I told her it was a sign. IF (when) she gets this job, she will get a 10,000 dollar a yr raise, and we are in desparate need of some financial stability right now.So how does it feel Cassandra? How does it feel to be part of a sign that initated the turning point in someone's life?Thankyou... =)

Please may sure your reply is relavent and on topic"This is not saying all threads on the board need to be about poi or spinning but that responses within a thread should keep to that topic.That being said.....Thank you Cassandra.I have spent several of the past few days engulfed in a quiet contemplation as to whether or no I really should be persuing the path I am on. I have felt lately that I am a completely inadequate performer, and following that measure, an inadequate person.It's one of the reasons I have been somewhat silent in all my communiques.It doesn't change my feelings entirely but it helps.

Superman, I am so very happy, I mean *really* happy that this could have helped your lovely princess. Life is full of this little magic happening and giving us a lift... Truth is, when I received this quote from my friend I was feeling rather bad about myself and it really made me feel more peacefull and smiling, so I thought maybe it will find echo and make other people smile too. So again, Superman, I am really happy but most of all I think your wife is lucky because she gets her energy from the love and support YOU give her

Pele, I'd give a lot to see you perform and I'd also be happy to meet you as a person and I know I am not the only one. However I beleive those little (I say Little....) doubts are not only healthy for artists but also create some new dynamics, new creative waves to surf on (gee... that Beach boy metaphore really sucks... sorry !). Anyway, thank YOu Pele !!!Courtnee, you make me laugh. happy for you that you are not the type who needs these kind of little things to give you confidence... Keep cool as you are

just gave the exact quote from Mandela since mine, as I had said, was just a translation back into english of the original quote.... so here goes the original version. I just don't like the fact that it mentions god, but that's just me I guess.Shine onCassandraOur deepest fear is not that we are indaquate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond imagination. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.We ask ourselves, who am i to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?Acutally who are you not to be? (...) Your playing small doesnt serve the world.Theres nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people wont feel insecure around you.We were born to manifest the glory of god that is within us.Its not just in some of us, Its in everyone.And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give people permissionto do the same.As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberatesother[This message has been edited by cassandra (edited 30 August 2001).]

Posted:People often feel guilty for being talented in some area or other. Its a shame since they wind up hiding such gifts away rather than sharing them with others or even seeing their own self-importance.

This quote is very timely, Cassandra Mama.

You have a beautiful soul.

The answer is never the answer. What's really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer-- they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer.-- Ken Kesey

Posted:heya cass, thanks for sharing his 'deepest fear' theme! ambition, success is threatening in the epectation that follows i guess! from his '94 Inaugural speech, the verbatim goes:
quote:
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, and faboulous?' Actually, who are not to be? You are a child of God. Yor playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing so enlightening about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are born to make manifest the glory of god which is within us. It is not in just some of us, it is in all of us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fears, our presence automatically liberates others.wow 1 month and not a single star wars quote

Posted:Im emailing that quote to my sister....

She works three jobs, Regional Manager of Scripture Union, an organisation that runs Youth Camps and helps young adults learn how to lead within their communities. She works as the Northern Territory's Liason for World Vision, and on weekends she chops fruit, to make fruit leather.

A year ago when she was asked to take on the job of Manager at SU, she didnt think she had the goods, but took the job because there was no one else. Its not a job that pays regularaly, or even a decent amount. I think this quote might remind her that she's in that position because someone big and almighty wants her to be there `

Thanks Cassandra, its a beautiful quote.

Posted:Thats an amazing quote. I've been felling pretty crappy all day (anxiety and depressing and stuff), and it took my loving darling KaZeKo like 40 minutes to make me feel better again (Thanks babe). And this quote is so true, when ever I'm depressed or having self esteme issues (Yes a guy with self esteme issues) I'm going to think of this quote. It kicked up my self esteme as soon as I read it. It's going to be my new motto.

Thankyou for sharing that with us Cass

Now the only thing I'm anxious about is I can't wait to go to the rave on Sat. w00t!
