How Dangerous Is a Broken Fluorescent Bulb?


"I want to see the first light in the dark universe.." Rolf Heuer

Sometimes our light goes out, but is blown again into instant flame by an encounter with another human being.
- Albert Schweitzer

I don't shine if you don't shine.
- The Killers

May the calm be widespread, may the shimmer of light ever dance across your pathway #maori #whakatauki #proverb

Translating: We are powerful beyond measure

we are powerful beyond measure (2011)

Estamos poderosos más allá (2011)

We are powerful beyond measure

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'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.

Estamos poderosos más allá

Nuestro miedo más profundo no es el de ser inadecuados. Nuestro miedo más profundo es el de ser poderosos más allá de toda medida. Es nuestra luz, no nuestra oscuridad que nos asusta. Nos preguntamos: ¿Quién soy yo para ser brillante, hermoso, talentoso, extraordinario? Actualmente quién eres tú para no serlo? Eres un hijo de Dios. Tu pequeñez no le sirve al mundo. No es brillante disminuirse para que otra gente no se sienta insegura a tu alrededor. Hemos nacido para manifestar la gloria divina que existe en nuestro interior. Esa gloria no está solamente en algunos de nosotros; está en cada uno. Y cuando permitimos que nuestra luz brille, subconscientemente le damos permiso a otra gente para hacer lo mismo. Al ser liberados de nuestro miedo, nuestra presencia automáticamente libera a otros.
