It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.
Another week gone by, another week to be grateful, for whether it was was good or whether it was bad, it has passed by never to return. Personally my week was challenging and another one is yet to come. Like traffic lights we are faced with the decision of whether to stop when it is red, proceed decisively when it is green, or simply slow down when it is amber to gather your thoughts. Regardless of the decision, one needs to be made. In times like this I always seek inspiration be it from my family, friends, poems and even random quotes in order to keep going and know that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I came across one of the most popular quotes- Our Deepest Fear- by author, Marianne Williamson from her book, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles. I have read and heard this quote so many times before but somehow it came at the most pertinent time this past week.
Maybe you also had a challenging week or maybe you simply need inspiration regardless, here are the words that gave me the inspiration and will to continue beyond all the darkness toward 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, 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.”
As Autumn creeps in, the leaves are transformed into golden hues of brown, yellow, red and orange, I look back at the week and the challenges but only fleetingly. For like the seasons that come and go so too I move on to something greater that awaits…
