Don't Fear the Light Inside You

With the beginning of a new cycle (chapter) in the human experience, I think it's a good time to really let our light shine. With that in mind...

"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 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."

Marianne Williamson

.......NOW is the time for us to SHINE
... We are on the cusp and we don't want to end up
... being "the Fallen", again
