“As I interpret the Course, ‘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.” (Reflections page 190-191) (Bolded Text added)
This weeks mediation deals with self love, something that is often ignored . What follows is from Marianne Williamson’s A Return to Love: Reflections on A Course in Miracles. Read it to yourself two to three times and then just ponder it for at least 15 minutes. You should believe every word as absolute truth, and if you don’t search for the reason why in your meditation.
