Thank you, Marianne and Nelson

In Marianne Williamson’s 1992 best selling book, A Return to Love, she gifts us with this inspiration. Nelson Mandela shared it in his 1994 Inaugural Address:

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 doesn't serve the world.

There's 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.

This Christmas season, may all our hearts open to the Light that we are, and generously share the Love ever-present there. We are not “joined at the hip”. We are joined at the heart! EnJoy! And always choose to embody being “Greatful".
