You can’t find it in a book. I know there are hundreds out there for you to pick, research, read, or buy for your collection”¦But you won’t find “it”. The search for the “way” does not exist…Not even in these words I am writing. Oh sure, guidance, and other people experiences will give you some insights, or even an occasional “aha” moment. But the truth? Nope.
That can only be felt. That has to be your experience and no other. Trust me on this one. I have clients that are brilliant. Really over the top, high IQ, many degrees, friggin BRIGHT! Yet, they have gaps. Just can’t connect the dots. Still a little out of balance, a little off center so to speak. Just like the rest of us”¦
You see it isn’t about how smart you are. It is about living authentically, congruently, and feeling everything as it happens. It’s about living in the moment and being present to all that is occurring. I fondly refer to it as being awake.
I’m a Marianne Williamson fan. Mainly because of this writing”¦
“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.”
This beautiful perspective about our light that we most fear helps make my point. You have to get out there and “live” the light. “Be” in the moment and feel what it’s like to be alive. What comes along with that living is the heartbreak of love and fear.
It’s time isn’t it”¦to get “out there” and feel it?
