Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. Carl JungIt is all about balance. Balancing our gifts against the fears, the hurts and sorrows, the wounds of life. Balancing who we are against who we believe we can be when we get off the tightrope of proving our deepest fears true.
This is a Choices week -- a week of long days, short sleeps. I am off to serve. To be a part of, to take part in the wonder of human beings awakening to their human condition and falling in love.
For today, I leave with you this passage from Marianne Williamson's "A Return to Love". Let it sing to your soul. Call your spirit out and set you free to live your true greatness.
“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.”
