Thought for Today

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.

  1. Beautiful, so true!

  2. Nice quote from MW....thank you.

    That writing is so on target for those just coming to consciousness (by any other name....program/fellowship/recovery etc.).

    We are mired in our own misery and fear is our dominant driver. It is truly a place to not be stuck in for very long. That goes for when we are in recovery also.

    The wonderful metamorphosis from "fearful" to "fearless" allows us to; "Be still and KNOW..." many things. And for sure it is MW's thoughts that we are the powerful uplifting wonderful child of the Most High....

    At this juncture I had discard her writings in the vein. I no longer could identify with the all consuming fears....I now wanted to read and feel the all consuming Love of God.

    This is a really great thought provoking blog item.....thank you so very much for allowing me to have this opportunity to share. Please keep sharing.

    Love and light,
