Lessons in Success: #23 Shine your Light

Wed, 04/11/2012 - 9:07pm | by monicadear


I'd like to share with you a beautiful quote from A Return to Love, by Marianne Williamson, who encourages to truly shine our own light.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond all measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us. We ask ourselves, who I am to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and 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 enlightening about shrinking so that other people won’t feel unsure around you. 

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. 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."

I encourage you to consider what is the light that is within you, that only you carry. 

We each have a certain unique gift that is ours to share with the world. Don’t hide your light: instead, raise it high and share it with all of us: our world is truly enriched and our human experience made more rich and varied when you share your light.
