InnerSelf's Daily Inspiration

September 7, 2023

The focus for today is:

 I am willing and able to listen to eternal wisdom 
 and to accept the mantle of true leadership. 

Today's inspiration was written by Rabbi Wayne Dosick:

The birthing of a new world depends on our willingness and ability to listen to eternal wisdom, to experience enlightenment, to step forward to accept the mantle of leadership.

True leadership interweaves all the thinking, feeling, spirit, and love of each and every person on this Earth who listens to the Inner Voice and who hears that voice giving its most potent and profound message: See the Face of God in the face of every human being. And love, love, love. 

Our task and our great privilege is to listen, listen, listen to that Inner Voice, to heed its lessons and to share and interconnect its message with the Voices Within of each and every other human being.

Today's inspiration was adapted from the article:
     Ready to Birth the New World?
     Written by Rabbi Wayne Dosick.

This is Marie T. Russell, publisher of, wishing you a day of accepting the mantle of true leadership (today and every day)

Comment from Marie:
The Daily Inspiration today reminds me of the following quote from the book Return to Love by Marianne Williamson: "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..." So, yes, we are all meant to be leaders in our own way, shedding illumination on the path of Love, Unity and Harmony.

Our focus for today: I am willing and able to listen to eternal wisdom and to accept the mantle of true leadership.
