Listen to the Radio Broadcast of this
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
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people
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|
I believe most people have read or heard these words from Marianne
Williamson's book, "A Return to Love" I knew that I had read
them more than once or twice before, and yet, I discovered myself
contemplating what is it that makes this so: "It
is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us."?
And what is the obstruction to this light? The Master Mind Jesus
is quoted in the Gospel of Matthew 5:16 "Let
your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and
glorify your Father which is in heaven." And this is
exactly what Marianne Williamson is telling us so many centuries later.
And yet, there are so many of us who still fail to recognize this light
within us and even for those who do, they fail to identify with it to
any great measure that is fulfilling and life enhancing.
After contemplating this for a
couple of days, I realized that what so many people "shrink"
from is the Love that creates this light within us. Most of
us are aware that Love is a synonym for G-d and that the Power of G-d is
a power of Love. But, this must be more than just something that
we believe to be true, but something that we realize works through all
things that concerns us. Love is creative and unlimited. It
is life-affirming and infinite in its capacity to bring a vitality and a
radiance to every living thing. Every species on the planet
reflects this as the truth, yet, humans, being inherently volitional,
can consciously choose to identify with love or dismiss it. "We
are all meant to shine," Marianne Williamson tells us ...
but the person who dismisses the power of Love, fails to fully realize
the possibilities that are available to them and therefore these words
mean little to them.
We have learned that "what
I am seeking, is seeking me" ... and we know that the way in
which to receive that which we seek, is through the fullness of our
faith working through Love and Law. Love provides for us the
ideas, the inspiration, the confidence and the guidance to have the
awareness of those things that appeal to us and fill our mind and heart
with joy and happiness, peace and harmony ... these are the good desires
of our heart. It is the Law that insures that our faith and focus
are a part of the unfoldment of our good from the evidence that we
realize in the invisible, in our thoughts and the images that come to
our awareness, into our actual experience of them ... through Law
(sowing and reaping, cause and effect), there is a precise and measured
outcome to all that we "think into" the Spirit.
Too often people become discouraged when
their love or their givingness and forgivingness, is not returned to
them in kind from those who are the object of their loving kindness.
But, the Law is universal and cannot be limited and so when we through
our thoughts and ideas limit the Law to individuals, we short-circuit,
so to speak, the action of the Law in returning to us multiplied
abundantly the love that we seek in return. We often read
statements about "self-less love" or
"self-less service" ... but the
Law does not respond to either of these in any measureable way for it is
not of Its Nature to do so. Nor does it respond to
"selfish-ness" in any constructive way. The Nature of
Universal Law is correspondence or reciprocity. We cannot diminish
ourselves with the idea that we do something without a personal or
individual benefit for ourselves. We always benefit whenever we do
something that benefits anyone and we should expect that whatever we do
that is impelled by Love, must return to us something of a loving
nature, otherwise, our sowing is obstructed and whatever it is that we
are doing "selflessly" begins to lose its appeal for us.
From Dr. Frank Richelieu's book,
"The Art of Being Yourself" we can read: "No
matter how many possessions you have, your life will be empty until you
touch and experience the infinite Intelligence within you. The
only thing which limits this power is you, yourself. You must
unlock the door of inner consciousness in your eternal search to know
more about this thing called Life. I am sure there are many, many
inner doors of consciousness which open upon greater and greater vistas
of livingness, but the only one you can open at this time is the one
that is before you. Once it is opened, others will present
themselves. ... You set your own pace, fast or slow, but what you must
do first is to begin. The Power is so vast and so great that it
can release you from all forms of tension and fear, doubt and anxiety,
uncertainty and confusion."
We unlock the inner consciousness
with Love; love for the Living Spirit within us, love for knowing that
G-d has incarnated a part of Itself within every living thing. To
have faith in G-d will stir up the power of Love within us ... to have
faith in this power of Love within us, will bring to our awareness ideas
that give us endless opportunities to choose the way in which we benefit
ourselves and the world in which we live. Let us begin to foster
and nurture the idea that the Living Spirit within us must be included
in the good results of all things that we do; that we must feel our
measure of the good that benefits others as well. There is a great
joy to be had in sharing the Love within us, but we must never allow our
feeling of being filled with this Love being diminished in any way ...
not in the things we do for ourselves or the things we do for others ...
for in this thing called Life, we are lost without Love.
is impossible, when we align ourselves with the Nature of G-d, Infinite
Spirit. The Love that created us, created us to be a blessing not
only to others, but to maintain the highest ideal of our self as an
inlet and an outlet for the infinite Love of the Spirit to express Life
through us powerfully, radiantly and intelligently, knowing that in the
Spirit we are One, not you and me, but One eternal Spirit in the
wholeness of Love.
SO IT IS!
