“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.”
I have to thank you from the soul of my being for your book “How to Enjoy Peace in your Life Everyday” . .
I have to thank you from the soul of my being for your book “How to Enjoy Peace in your Life Everyday”. I am only 80 pages into the book and it is making a profound impact. I too am a recovering alcoholic and the book seems as though it was written about me, for me! (its all about me, right?) Anyway I dragged myself out of bed this afternoon after calling out from work, had a fit of rage because of what everyone has done to me and sat down with the book. Thank God because the light that you mentioned on page 88 has once again made the prospect of suicide not an option.
I have hope and if this hope today is only to finish this book then it is one more day that my children have me in their lives. Thank you
