The Gift

As today’s gift, a comment received on yesterday’s gift post – my Winnie the Pooh quote on friendship. I loved what he shared, and wanted to send it out to all. Enjoy!

Although this quote does not quite pertain to friendship, whenever I read it I think of my close friends and how they have touched my life.

“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

So, my thanks to Tom for sending this to me. May we give everyone around us the permission to show their own glory, and liberate them, and ourselves, from fear……
