It was just brought to my attention that my blog was being hijacked by ads. I had no idea! I believe I’ve taken care of it. So sorry for the distraction! Sort of ironic since much of what I speak about is AGAINST this type of in your face marketing. Please accept as my apology the following poem which I think is the most beautiful poem ever written. Go forth- let your light shine and in the process of doing so you will liberate others.
Our Deepest Fear by Marianne Williamson
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 it small does not 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
