Shine!

Shine!

“You pay God a compliment by asking great things of Him.”
– Theresa de Avila

Whatever your gifts, whatever your dreams, whatever your lessons, whatever your pain, fear or joy let your little light shine. As Nelson Mandela put it

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.

So go on, ask great things of God.
He’s asking great things of you.
