A New Year dawning soon...


I am beginning to get uncovered from the paint and wrapping paper and glittery bows...and I am reminded once again of these words as we approach the dawning of the New Year...I post them here for you also to reflect and rejoice in the wisdom...
Artfully Yours,
Pattie

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 does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other 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 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 from her book, "A Return to Love," p. 165
