Let Your Light SHINE!

During one of my Dream Boogie teleclasses, SARK read an incredible quote that I HAVE to share. I can’t get it out of my head – a sign that I must write about it to de-clutter my brain.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our 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 are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
By Marianne Williamson from A Return To Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles

This quote spoke to me quite strongly. I wonder how many of us can relate.

It makes me think about a good old Sunday School song I used to sing when I was little:

This little light of mine… I’m gonna let it shine… Let it shine! Let it shine! Let it shine!

    So true, I find I am the one that keeps me from realizing my potential and nothing more than that. Thanks I needed that today.
