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, A Return to Love
You are here to manifest the glory of life as you! Cultivating meaningful work gives you a place to give your gift and shine your light. Don’t just go to a job. No matter the tasks, find the purpose and the gift that your work is to others. Large or small, you can always make a contribution that matters.
Spiritual Contemplation: Are you manifesting the Glory of You?
Affirmation: I am here to make manifest the Glory of God—at work, at home, in my life.
