“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 doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so other people won’t feel insecure around you. You were born to manifest the glory of God that is within you. 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’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Marianne Williamson, in “A Return to Love”

BEST of Bonus PONDER on THIS
“To this garden we were given,
And we always took for granted
It’s like my daddy told me,
“You just grow where you’re planted”
Now you long to be delivered
From this world of pain and strife
That’s a sorry substitution for a spiritual life.”
Don Henley, in the song, “They’re Not Here, They’re Not Coming” from the CD “Inside Job”
