Awakening the Feminine: Marianne Williamson

Today I'm illuminating a brilliant quote from Marianne Williamson.  I carried this with me every day of my life after it was given to me by a dear friend.  As i grow older, I'm coming to realize the power of this message.  As women, we will be told to play small, avoid offending others, speak softly, make less money, and so on....lest we offend the men in our lives.  No! We are all born to make manifest the glory of God within.  It's courageous to live into the one said it would be easy.

“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.”
