Our Deepest Fear

By Marianne Williamson

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’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 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’re liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

Matthew McConaughey; This Is Why You’re Not Happy

Jen Sincero; Freefalling into uncertainty

True words are often unpleasant; pleasant words are often untrue. Those who know the truth do not argue about it; those who argue do not know the truth. Scholars are seldom the wisest people; the wise are seldom scholars. Those who steal from others impoverish themselves; those who give to others become rich. Those who fight do not win; those who win do not fight. This is the way of the Tao.

How we can awaken from our non-stop doing, including the incessant inner narrative, and discover the mystery, love and freedom that arises in Being: From Human Doing to Human Being – Part 1 – Tara Brach

“While life brings you thrills and excitement, it also dispenses you with a fair share of puzzles and perplexity. You are perplexed when a good friend suddenly gives you a cold shoulder, worried when your boss speaks to you in a tone unusually stern, and anxious when your tour agent fails to pick you up in a foreign land. We tend to react when uncertainty arises; and often overreact. You can, as a matter of fact, try something quite different. When you are puzzled at what your see, do not stare hard.  Instead, relax your mind and get your inner self to feel the thing. When you cannot figure out what you hear, do not struggle to listen. Rather, take a step back, and feel the vibration with a quiet mind. Let go of trying and open your mind to receive. When you allow your mind to receive, intricacy is given a chance to become simplicity; and the shapeless to palpable. It gets you see what you do not see and hear what you do not hear – moving you a step closer to reality. It brings the present back to you, enabling you to know what is actually happening. Do you have the patience to wait until your mud settles and the water is clear? “Do you have the patience to wait Till your mud settles and the water is clear? Can you remain unmoving Till the right action arises by itself?” Lao Tzu Tao Te Ching Chapter 15: Do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles – Tao Te Ching”

Do follow the link and read, not only David’s article but consume every article and video he refers to. I warn you — it may take over an hour — but, every single article is worthy of your attention. David is to me the most amazing of human beings; he is smart, articulate AND kind. While you might sometimes find two of the three someone like David does not come along often and for what it’s worth, I want to share his thinking with you…

Here’s a list of all the articles to which he refers:

What Neuroscience Tells Us About Being in Love

“How on earth are you ever going to explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love?—Albert Einstein

Einstein was correct—science will never clinically sterilize the wonderment of love (first or otherwise). But I think he’d also agree that it’s a mistake to confuse increased understanding with diminished meaning. No matter what we learn about love, it will continue to be one of the most meaningful and powerful forces on the planet, as it should be. With that disclaimer, let’s jump in and discover what we’ve learned so far: What Neuroscience Tells Us About Being in Love | Psychology Today

The Neuroscience of Love

Love’s been around a long time. As an evolutionary anthropologist Dr Machin is fascinated by what makes us fall in love and what keeps us there. In this talk she will use the results of cutting edge research in the fields of neuroscience, genetics, evolutionary theory and psychology to explain what happens in our brains when we fall in love and how this affects how we feel and behave when we are in love: King’s College London – The Neuroscience of Love
