There are words that simply burn in our consciousness and succinctly define who we are and help us make a little sense of our journey in this maze called life.
Here’s a quote by Goethe that I find truly inspiring. Personally, I think it speaks to the image of God in each and everyone of us. We simply ARE, just as God is the I AM. Enjoy the quote and read it with a sincere spirit of humility at the awesomeness of God that he gave us such amazing powers- to be co-heirs of the kingdom. So what’s your favourite quote(s)?
I AM THE DECISIVE ELEMENT by Goethe
“I have come to the frightening conclusion that I AM the decisive element.
It is my personal approach that creates the climate.
It is my daily mood that makes the weather.
I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous.
I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration.
I can humiliate or humor; hurt or heal.
In all situations, it is my response that determines whether a crisis
is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized and dehumanized.
If we treat people as they are, we make them worse.
If we treat people as they ought to be,
we help them become what they are capable of becoming”.
Remember, you are not ordinary, you are divinely unique.
