World Hold On

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 are all meant to shine, as children do. We are 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.

This quote was sent to me by my cousin with a beautiful email that brought tears to my eyes. I was tempted, but did not share the rest of the email because I was not sure if he would mind… If he doesn’t, I will do so later.

But I liked this quote to go with this link that I’m sending you about a music video that I loved. I saw this just today and it was like Bob Sinclair sang this from my heart. I really enjoyed it so please go and watch and enjoy it: World Hold On by Bob Sinclair.

I have been overwhelmed by the response I’m getting from the world… I am at loss for words… I am deeply touched and will make sure I continue on playing my role in this Quest.

But this is no longer only my Quest. It is the duty of every one of you to go beyond just reading and writing on the Space Blog. It is your duty to make sure this excitement, this wave, this wonderful force that has awakened the best in us continues on.

I’m sure you enjoyed reading each others’ comments and postings as much as you enjoyed reading mine, and as much as I enjoyed reading them. I bet it felt like you are not the only one anymore and there are literally millions who think like you… It made you feel that you are not alone, that there is hope.

I don’t like to be idealized or become an icon. I’m not special, I just found that light inside me that you all have and got my strength from it. It seems like I found the key to open up your hearts and souls so now you can reach inside and gain strength from there.

Now that we are here, let’s all be equal in this Quest and share the responsibility of saving our world. It is too much for one person but when it is up to all of us, I know we can do it.

Enjoy the video.. I really did…

With all my love and gratitude…
