Spiritual and inspirational quotes. The Insight of the Week was established in late June, 2004 by Hamid Shibata Bennett, LMT, licensed massage therapist in Portland, Oregon. The quotations come from Hamid's library of readings and meanderings through the spiritual world. May you find a glimmer of truth in these words, leading you ever closer to the beauty of your self-realization. Namasté.
