It’s not easy to shine. We all think it is, looking into whatever light we find, wherever we’re lucky enough to find it, whether people, place or thing.
But the truth is, it takes courage to shine. To take that risk, that leap, that plunge. To let people see you, hear you, read you, know you … to own that light and believe in the inalienable right to shine, shine, shine.
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 is not just in some of us; it is 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.
