Today I would like to share this passage. I am not much of a literary person, in the sense I don’t read a lot. I love to, however, circumstances have always hampered my reading. The following passage, interesting enough, I first found in a movie called ‘Coach Carter’. I had to investigate and find more about it. So here is the full and original from a book by Marianne Williamson called, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”
“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.”
The above passage, by itself is so powerful, I seldom try and explain it. Print it and post on the wall so that you can read it once every day. Get encouraged and empowered to liberate yourself and bring that joy in your life.
