Several challenges may pop up when you start living an extraordinary life. Two of the most important are being able to face your biggest fears and embracing the extraordinary moments of your life.
I want to share the following quotes and poems to help us face these challenges.
“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 does not 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.”
Embracing the Extraordinary Moments
“There is a great secret that beings throughout time have announced, the secret of an extraordinary treasure, the treasure of the nectar of eternal life. It is the nectar of pure beingness, recognizing itself as consciousness and overflowing in the love of that recognition.”
An Affirmation of Realization
“At the innermost level of my being I am serenely peaceful.
I am completely fulfilled because soul‐satisfied.
No longer blinded by delusions, I know what is true.
No longer confused by illusions, I see what is real.
Established in the Infinite, I live effectively
with flawless skill and easy grace.
I knowledgeably cooperate with the supportive laws
of nature and spontaneously demonstrate total wellness.”
—Roy Eugene Davis
“Once the journey of soul recovery
is begun in earnest, Life itself
conspires to support us. It is up to
us to learn to cooperate with it.
For one who is surrendered to
God, a change in consciousness is
inevitable. It comes like the
approaching dawn. There is a long
time in the dark, then slowly,
barely perceptible changes occur
until finally the entire landscape of
our life is illumined.”
—Ellen Grace O’Brian
