Shrinking vs Shining

emma-lisaLisa

It feels like this quote has been chasing me down, hot on my heels for the past few days. Wanting my attention. I keep bumping into it.

So of course I just giggled with non surprise when this book by  Messenger arrived and I opened it up unknowingly to find that same quote jumping out at me a few pages in.

Ok I get the message!

Here it is in full:

“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 does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not 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 is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

– Marianne Williamson

I’ve highlighted in bold the parts that jumped out at me, about not playing small or hiding our light.

If you needed a nudge to start living up to your full potential today, consider this it!

Be Deliberate!

And The Day Came

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom”

Sit and Listen

“You do not need to leave your room.
Remain sitting at your table and listen.
Do not even listen, simply wait.
Do not even wait, be quite still and solitary.
The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked.
It has no choice.
It will roll in ecstasy at your feet.”

– Franz Kafka
