You know, that thing between “here” and “there”
that would have you see yourself alone,
instead of as the bridge between them.
That medium between you and the rest of the world
that disguises your role in creating it.
You know, that veil through which the physical senses must explore your chiseled secrets.
See? Aliens are the least of your worries…
Phone home, Tollie… “The Dreamer”
“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. 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. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights 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
