Happy New Year

As 2013 comes to a close, I wanted to share a thought by Marianne Williamson that I’ll be thinking on into this New Year.

 

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, and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.

There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

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 that same.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

 

Happy 2014
