The Queen of My Self

The Queen of My Self

Words of Self-Wisdom

 

Several of my recent posts have been about the Self,
including “What Exactly is the Self?” in which I wrote, “The Self is the sum of
all of our parts, and holistically, it is greater than the sum of all of our
parts. The fluid Self transcends time and space, expanding and shape-shifting,
changing and adapting to accommodate the possibility of all possibility.” Our
Self is “the artful patchwork of our own lives designed from the wild and
wonderful patterns of our own personality and experiences, and crafted from our
individual inner authority.”

Here are some words of Self-wisdom by some very wise
women:

“We have all a better guide in
ourselves, if we would attend to it, than any other person can be.” – Jane Austen

***

“Doubt yourself and you doubt
everything you see. Judge yourself and you see judges everywhere. But if you
listen to the sound of your own voice, you can rise above doubt and judgement.
And you can see forever.” – Nancy Kerrigan

 “It took me a long time not to judge myself through someone
else’s eyes.” – Sally Field

 “Falling, falling, falling,
falling down. Look yourself in the eye before you drown.” – Emily Saliers of the Indigo
Girls

 “Our goal while on this earth is to transcend our
illusions and discover the innate power of our spirit.” – Caroline Myss

 “As you begin to understand the immense power and love you hold inside, you will find an unending surge of joy. Light and love that will nourish and support you all the days of your life.” – Susan Jeffers

***

“In our natural state, we are glorious beings. In the world
of illusion, we are lost and imprisoned, slaves to our appetites and our will
to false power.” – Marianne Williamson

 “If you do not tell the truth about yourself you cannot tell
it about other people.” – Virginia Woolf

***

 “Every problem can be solved with the proper application of the
means at hand. Maybe not easily, happily, cheaply or painlessly – but it can be
done if you have the will; you already have the means – yourself!” – Joanne
Siewert

only reflects back to myself,

my own light blinding me.

can’t see me.” – Anna Chrisrest

second-rate version of somebody else.” – Judy Garland

beginning of time, you are incomparable.” – Brenda Uleland

swallowed a Sun. And now it dawns and sets in my belly.” – Erika Harris
