My all time, favorite quote…It is a quote by Marianne Williamson (A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”, Harper Collins, 1992. It is from chapter 7, section 3). This is the thought for the day. Ponder it, and allow it to have influence in your life.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Or deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?” Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. 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. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
What a great concept – let’s all employ this view point and CHOOSE to live our lives in the light!!!
