The heart generates the largest electromagnetic field in the body … The
electrical field is about 60 times greater in amplitude than the brain waves.
The magnetic component of the heart’s field, which is around 100 times
stronger than that produced by the brain … can be measured several feet away from the body.
—Rollin McCraty, Ph.D.
“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.”
——from A Return to Love, by Marianne Williamson.
Just for today
Just for today I will try to live through this day only, and not tackle my whole life problem at once.
I can do something for twelve hours that would appal me if I felt that I had to keep it up for a lifetime.
Just for today I will be happy. Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.
Just for today I will adjust myself to what is, and not try to adjust everything to my own desires. I will take my “luck” as it comes, and fit myself to it.
Just for today I will try to strengthen my mind.
I will study. I will learn something useful. I will not be a mental loafer.
I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration.
Just for today I will exercise my soul in three ways: I will do somebody a good turn, and not get found out; if anybody knows of it, it will not count.
I will do at least two things I don’t want to do - just for exercise.
I will not show anyone that my feelings are hurt; they may be hurt, but today I will not show it.
Just for today I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress becomingly, talk low, act courteously, criticise not one bit, not find fault with anything and not try to improve or regulate anybody except me.
Just for today I will have a programme.
I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it.
I will save myself from two pests: hurry and indecision.
Just for today I will have a quiet half hour all by myself, and relax.
During this half hour, sometime, I will try to get a better perspective of my life.
Just for today I will be unafraid.
Especially I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful and to believe that as I give the world, so the world will give to me.
