Yes…I am still fighting about letting my light shine.
I listen to this clip multiple times a week…it still brings tears to my eyes…which to me, means I still have some work to do with it.
“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. 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.”
For too long…as long as I can remember, I have “played small.” I have shrunk around people, in hopes of not making them feel insecure around me. Now that the awareness has been brought forth, it has opened my eyes and brought about a new perspective to me…and…as always…is horrifying me! I am trying to chase back to this origin of belief…why…at what point did I believe it was mightier…it was right to shrink rather than to let my light shine?
Selfish! Yes…that is the way I will approach my shrinking, as being a selfish act of myself. “We are all meant to shine, as children do.” Then I will begin to let my light shine! “And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” Unselfish! Letting my light shine unconsciously gives other permission to do the same…. *Epiphany***
“As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” I’m in! I can do this! I will do this! I AM doing this!!!
Lots of sits has brought me to lots of epiphanies. Lots of awareness has brought me to new perspectives. New perspectives have brought me to new ways of thinking. New ways of thinking has brought me to new feelings. New feelings have brought me to new beliefs. New beliefs have brought me to new actions. New actions have brought me to my new life. My new life has brought me to such joy and happiness…I am grateful. I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy!
