Excerpts from Marianne Williamson's Our Greatest Fear eloquently creates the template for generating the life of your dreams!
"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.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
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."
What's Stopping You?
Are you wondering what you are "supposed to" DO as your life purpose? The words "supposed to", "have to", "should" and "ought to" begs the question "Who says?" Enter parents, teachers, religious leaders, bosses and/or spouses who emphasize conforming to conventional wisdom, customs and/or beliefs to keep you in line, therefore stifling your potential. People pleasing, losing all of you to ensure others' happiness, also robs you of living your phenomenal life.
We are called human beings, not human doings, because our purpose is to BE all of the unique beings we are. Our "doing" addiction feeds the ego and keeps the boat from rocking while judgment and saying "I don't know" stops energy immediately. How often are you interspersing "I don't know" with judging yourself and others? Believing you don't know is a lie. Your knowing is buried under your efforts to validate other's wishes/expectations of you.
