I’ve been wanting to read this book for years, but I found the audiobook on youtube instead. This book, “A Return To Love,” is where this famous quote came from:
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. 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’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
You know who your great girlfriends are when they buy you books and say, “I hope this book will guide you towards many more miracles to come.” A really amazing friend gave this book, “A Year of Miracles” by Marianne Williamson during my recent birthday. I met her here in Hong Kong when I moved last year, and although it’s only been a “short” friendship from a linear point of view, I do feel that in this case, time deems irrelevant and we speak like we’ve known each other forever.
I don’t read this book linearly either. I often times just open it to a random page to see what the message is for me on that particular day. Tonight landed on Day 155, and read “Limitations do not stand before the limitlessness of God, and it is the limits to our faith, not the limits of our circumstances, that keep us from experiencing miracles.”
To continue, “Every situation provides us the chance to live with broader, more audacious hope and faith that all things are possible. God is bigger than any limited circumstance in our past; God is bigger than any limitation that the world is showing us now. Limitations exist only as a challenge to us to mature spiritually, as we realise that through the grace of God we are bigger than they are.”
I’ve been going through some synchronistic experiences that keep reminding me to take everything to the next level. In hindsight, sometimes we see that the only thing blocking us is ourselves. Time to let go of limitations and unlock the next level xxx
A few months ago, I met a vibrant young woman at an art gallery here in Singapore. What felt like a blind date (because I had only met her via an Instagram introduction) turned out to be one of the most memorable meet ups I’ve ever had.
Meet Pauline Hanuise, a remarkable holistic health coach, who not only teaches you how to care for your body, but also brings the mind and soul into the healing mix as well. Pauline also helps individuals recover from eating disorders that have plagued them for years; and she knows this well because she’s been there before and recovered successfully. This experience inspired her to help other individuals breakthrough as well.
When I decided to start interviewing people for my blog, Pauline was the first person I thought of because I really believe in her and her message. I often check out her blog for her insights, or her posts on Mind Body Green for quick recipe tips. But above all, I think of her for the courage and dedication it takes to turn your life around for the better.
