A Return to Love

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 is not just in some of us; it is 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

Before you love others,
try to love yourself first.

Why?
Try to read this a really nice article to open up our minds a bit.

Happy reading!

  1. Beberapa lama "memonitoring" jejakmu, mulai terlihat "benang merahnya": tentang sebuah usaha tanpa henti untuk menjadi manfaat dan terang bagi orang lain.
    And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
    Yep, setuju, organ terpenting itu memang bahu. ;)
    Bukan soal bahu kekar atau mungil *wink*, tetapi bahu yang terbuka, dan membuat kita merasa diterima.
    Go on, Dear Mei.

    Terima kasih karena semangatmu membuatku jg lebih bersemangat lagi, menunggu sesuatu u/ dikomentari.
    Terima kasih karena aku boleh berlangganan tanpa harus membayar..
    Terima kasih karenamu "bahu terbukaku" tidak sia-sia. Ngga ada yg lebih menyedihkan, daripada punya bahu terbuka tapi tak siapapun yang berkenan "menggunakannya". Huehehe.. Bahu ngga laku itu rentan masuk angin lho..

    Tuh kan, jadi lomba ngucapin terima kasih :))
