I found this video by author Marianne Williamson. You may or may not be immediately familiar with her name but one of her most famous quotes has been on the tip of the cultural lexicon for quite some time. From her book, A Return To Love:
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.
She discusses how we need to reorder our thinking from the beginning of our day so we may be centered and focused. To not carry the baggage from the past into our present and future. So many of us are feeling burdened by external forces and even if we have a spiritual practice in place that doesn’t mean an adjustment wouldn’t be beneficial. So breath deeply, exhale and enjoy your day.
