So at this point in the later part of January you’re finally getting “settled in” to the New Year. The Holidays are truly over, you’ve gotten back to town, maybe you’ve gotten rid of a few Holiday eating pounds, you’re officially back into your routine or whatever you call…your life. You’ve likely even gone on some auditions and maybe have even booked a job already, or read for a Series Reg. in a Pilot. Either way I’d like you, before we get into February, to just STOP for a moment and read this or RE-read it if you done so before. I commonly have to remind myself of its brilliance and therefore my brilliance, your brilliance, the brilliance that CAN emanate from us all…if we just allow it to do so. I first heard this in the “way back” machine of about 1994 or 1995. I once heard Marianna speak in person, probably as many of you have, and she is just terrific.
As you read this, begin to “feel yourself” and truly start releasing ALL of you…that isn’t you at your core, who you are, who you want to evolve and become and what that means. I have found after all of these years of my life that a key to “inner peace, calm or tranquility” is indeed simplicity. That isn’t to say you’re simple, life is simple or that you shouldn’t be pushing or striving…it simply means that you’re CLEAR. You’re clear on what it is that makes you brilliant, what it is that you can do…in the way that you do, that is the BEST of you. At the end of the day, that is all this wonderful quote means, and ironically with all of life’s distractions it is so very easy to become bits n’ pieces of everyone else’s world and being…instead of your own. Be you, be proud, be vigilant in breathing in the brilliance of you…and conversely become ALL of the you that you feel inside.
From Marianne Williamson’s: A Return to Love (Commonly misattributed to Nelson Mandela’s 1994 Inaugural speech.)
“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.”
Always on your side @theKevinE
