Welcome To A New Series
Lumina's cycle has come to an end and A Spoonful of Spiritual Quotes has arrived in a new short, weekly format.
Each week's email features a different quote - some short, others a little longer. There will be encouraging stories of the astonishing effects of prayer and other divine interventions, inspiring poems, spiritual guidance on practical topics like relationships and careers, accounts of near-death experiences, an occasional morsel of philosophical reflection, and much, much more.
All are carefully chosen to help you along on your spiritual path, giving you a little boost of encouragement to keep on keeping on.
I hope you'll enjoy the new series and get just what you need out of it. Try it out for a few weeks and if you decide it's not for you, feel free to use the unsubscribe option that you'll find at the end of any email. Well, without further ado, let's get started.
Who Am I?
This week's spoonful of spiritual quotes comes from Marianne Williamson's book A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles. You may well have heard it before but it's so potent that you'll benefit from reading it even for the fiftieth time.
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 doesn't serve the world. There's 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.
And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our deepest fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
This then is our true purpose in life, to discover who we truly are and to be all that we can be.
