*My mind wandered all over the place with this. Had a huge unexpected expense with the car yesterday. For a while it
triggered that old fear of the ‘what if’ in my mind. When you are on a really tight budget and you know you just cannot afford any extra expense and something like this crops up, it kind of knocks the wind out of your sails for a while but, life is what it is and, we go on.
“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.”
