One of the things that I have learned in the past few years is to let my light shine. Do what I can to help others. When I have figured something out, then tell others about it. This applies to everyone. As I have heard it said, We are made for great things. Don’t play small. Share your talents with others. I know that this is not easy. I am not perfect, none of us are. When we share a part of ourselves, we make mistakes. It is hard. We need to evaluate what we did and start over. It is a hard process, but that is how we improve and help others on the way. Be a light to others.
I love this poem by Marianne Wiliamson:
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?
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to manifest the glory of God 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 fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
