Flying with fortification, a re-post sort of

TI just felt the need to post this again. I guess I needed to read the words again or maybe my soul just needed the comfort.

Today is about fortification for flying. We need nourishment. That can come in many forms. For me it has come in the form of great friends. Other times we need encouragement and sometimes we just need to be reminded not to be less than who we truly are. We were made for flying!

Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles

Our deepest fear is not that we are
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful
beyond measure.
It is our light, not our dark, 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 is 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 is not just in some of us, it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we
unconsciously give other people the permission
to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
