Last Nights Dream

This morning I woke up with tears streaming from my eyes coming out of the most profoundly sad dream. As I quietly moved around the house, I kept wondering what message that dream was trying to tell me. The more I tried to make sense of it the less I understood since it didn't apply to my life at this moment. When I looked back and thought of the saddest times in my life the dream's meaning started to fall together like an unsolved puzzle and compassion replaced the fear and sadness I felt. It was amazing! Then, I saw this quote:

“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 

So, life is wonderful at this very moment, and I am happy and will shine on everyone I meet today. When the seasons change as they always do, I will look at this moment and remember it with complete gratitude.
