|A Return to Love|
We are not far off Winter Solstice,
when 'the light begins its return into the Northern Hemisphere,
and the days lengthen once more.
We live in interesting times.
Never was it more important to embrace the Light of Spirit,
come out of the Shadows of our own Lives,
Take a deep breath
Step into our own power
to become the people we are intended to become.
Here is a quote most of you will be familiar with,
but one which is so inspiring for this time of year.
Who are we not to embrace the Light.
We are the Light!
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, 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 'A Return to Love'
