"A Return To Love"

Dear 2013 VOF Peoples,

In her book, "A Return To Love," Marianne Williamson says the following, which seems like a good thing to dedicate to our Correspondents . . . as well as to all Mentors, both Vision and Editorial. For those who prefer, the message can be equally strong without the references to God. With awe at your brilliance, gorgeousness, talent and fabulousness,
- Sarah

"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 is not just on some of us; it is 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."
