It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us. You are a child of God. your playing small doesn't serve the world.
There's nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it is 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 fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
This is out of a book I'm reading called "Nonviolent Communication"
What an amazing book and a beautiful quote.
It seems so easy for me to believe my niece Gracie has this light, look at her! I pray we can all let our lights shine bright.
