"It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us."

I have been wanting to write something today outside of the book I am working through. I stumbled on this quote from Nelson Mandela (below).

“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 are all meant to shine, as children do. We are 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.” -Nelson Mandela

Ask yourself a few questions please and either post a response or send me a FB message and left me know what you thought is.

1) Are you living the best life you can?

2) What is holding you back from that?

3) What choices can you make to begin to live in the light?

4) What could possibly be as bad as not living to your potential?

Take a walk through your past, reflect on what got you to where you are, and see if it is the best you can do for yourself and for the planet. If it’s not, reflect on what you can do to make it all better for you and for the planet.
