An unusual to-do list

A favorite quote.

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 frightens us most.

We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?”  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 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 all of us.

And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.  As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

~Maryanne Williamson

 

A thought.

I don’t want to live caught in a web of guilt-based should do’s.

Neither, of course, do I want to live in the self-serving, self-centered want to do’s.

I want to dwell in the freedom of created to do.

 

A blessing.

May each of us have the insight, the courage, and the kindness to be and become fully alive because we are doing what we are created to do.

Amen.
