Encouragement of Light
“I wish I could show you,
When you are lonely or in darkness,
The Astonishing Light
Of your own Being!”― Hafez
Let the light in.
Open your heart, release the light within.
Out and in.
Ebb and flow.
Darkness lingers, but light resides unhindered, running deep.
A current, a force, a liberator.
Astonishing light and beauty.
A rose in bloom.
“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.” – Marianne Williamson
