I Am Enough

"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." ~ Marianne Williamson

The Cup

The Cup by Bob Perks

You do have my prayers, my friend.

I have another perspective on the "cup and saucer." It really just
this second came to me as I read your message.

It all depends on how one sees their cup.

Some people see small cups. They live a life in such a way that they
see their portion and needs as small. Their cup is always overflowing
and life is certainly abundant even though in reality it takes little
to fill it.

Others see the cup has huge. Their portion or desires for life are
never ending.

They can never get enough. They won't bother with the little things
the others find as important, because they add little to the filling
of such a big cup.

Thus, their cup will never come close to overflow. Even if it did,
they'd then want a bigger cup.

They are rarely happy with anything but more.

When faced with health issues, life threatening occurrences, both
people are brought to the same place, the same level.

Both will certainly be afraid. Both will worry.

The first one is more likely to be a person of faith. After the
initial shock they will turn to God, be grateful for a life lived
fully and trust in Him.

The second might go either way. If they acknowledge God, they might
be angry with Him and blame Him for this.

On the other hand this might be an awakening for some in that group.
Suddenly they see value in life itself not the stuff of life.

Of course there are people of abundance who are people of faith.
They never have a full cup because they have shared what they had all
along. I'm thinking the cup was most likely always 90% full with, at
the very least, 10% gone to others. Tithing.

We must also keep in mind those who wish they even had a cup to fill.
They would be happy with something to hold in their hands.

I believe, my friend, you are in the first group.

This is why everything I believe and all that I do is based on
my story...
"I wish you enough!"
