We are all connected. We choose either love or fear to embrace, and unfortunately, fear is the apparent choice of those grasping for the reins of power. All is not lost, we still have a choice in how we treat each other in the moment. We can still make the choice of love over fear in the moment – moments add up reflecting a lifetime. Marianne Williamson teaches there are two emotions in life: love and fear. I’m no maven, guru or expert, simply a carbon based life form, reminded of Black Sheep’s 1991 release, The Choice Is Yours, and Tatianna, in season 2, of RuPaul’s Drag Race. The choice is still yours. Why are you afraid? Accept fear, choose love.
“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.”
