"If man is not thinking about himself, he is himself" (William Morris). Insecurity puts up a wall, it covers us with a blanket, so that the light can't shine through. When we recognise that what is inside of us is beautiful, that we hold it in perishable containers, our clay jars; we can't help but realise that if we let our walls of insecurity down, then that light can do more than just shine through the cracks of our broken pots, it can beam radiantly through our lives, to love and to bless those around us.

"Those who are wise - the people of God shall shine as brightly as the suns brilliance"
"Do what you can. Be what you are. Shine like a glow worm if you can't be a star"
"And we are put on earth a little space. That we may learn to bear the beams of love."
"People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering."
