August 2, 2007- August 4, 2007 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, to be gorgeous,
talented, and fabulous. Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that others won’t feel insecure around you.
We are born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
And as we let our light shine, we consciously give others
permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
Marianne Williamson –
I had just written a heartfelt post on parenting from fear. I am now in a state of shock because I hit the wrong key and all my words are GONE. So now at this moment I am feeling rediculously sad because I do not know how to recreate what I had just written.
I will try to reconstruct…..I have been feeling a failure as a parent ( and now at this silly blog) because I have not been nurturing my children. I have been keeping them safe from all the things in the world I am fearful off. I do not know how to put my fears aside and trust my children. But also trust God that they are on their correct life path. But who am I not to trust God? Are all Mothers control freaks of their children’s lives? Maybe I will light a few more candles and this time I will light the candles for me.
