"As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same." –Marianne Williamson
We are beings of light. Soul, our true self, is composed of light at such a high vibration that it cannot be seen here in the physical world. Even our physical DNA is now known to emit light.
When we "let our light shine," we are living up to our potential as children of God. How can we accomplish this? One way is to practice the presence of the Holy Spirit, which is that aspect of God that communicates with us. When we remain in contact with Holy Spirit, we have a reservoir of energy to draw upon, and we can accomplish much more than we could if we relied only on our own brains or brawn.
When we are filled with the Holy Spirit, everything we do is done in God's name. Think about some of the things you have done in the last 24-48 hours. Was everything you did done in God's name? Think about something you did in the past that you were not proud of. Were you thinking about God when you did it? Probably not.
When we are filled with the Holy Spirit, we are more positive, more helpful, more thoughtful of others, and and more apt to do things that are for the highest benefit of the most people. Because of this, we uplift others when we, ourselves, are uplifted by the Holy Spirit. When the people around us are uplifted, they feel that they can conquer their worries and fears. They feel more positive about life, and more energized. This is a good reason to pray, meditate, or contemplate each day (whichever is your normal practice.) Through prayer and meditation, we stay in contact.
We all have spiritual potential within us, but because we were given free will, we have to give our permission for it to be developed. As soon as we learn who we truly are, and as soon as we learn to stay in contact with Holy Spirit, our spiritual potential is put into play. We learn to create our lives from the basic building blocks that God has given us. We learn the effect our attitude has on our lives. We learn to go within to ask God for answers. We are learning to give and receive Divine Love, and we are learning to create our lives consciously. We are learning to make choices that bring love, wisdom and freedom into our lives. We are also learning to pass along God's love to others, as we go about our daily lives. :-)
