Yoga found me. At a time I felt ill prepared for the moment. At a time my life was, by all outward glances, falling apart. At a time when my hope was waning. Yoga found me and led me home.
One day, on my mat in savasana, I heard these words:
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, and 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 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.
Wow! My heart opened, I connected deeply – who are you not to be. That truth, now seeped in my cells, began to lead me beyond my wildest imagination. They continue to inspire me to live beyond my fears.
I invite you, with an open heart and open arms, to know the extraordinary potential that is you, to experience you beyond your wildest imagination, to come home to joy – who are you not to?
