There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.<br />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.<br />As we are liberated from our own fears, our presence automatically liberates others.<br />~ Marianne Williamson <br />
