Your deepest fear

Recently I have seen this passage again,
(A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles", Harper Collins, 1992. From Chapter 7, Section 3]) on a couple of blog.

Each time I read it in the past and then now again, I get different messages and lessons out of it. It is truely one of my favorite.

Just to take out a few lines which stands out to me this time:

"Your playing small does not serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same."

You see, we are all meant to do our best, this is the only way we can give light to others to shine as well. Please never ever think of lowering your own standards, so as to feel at ease among everyone; do not play small.

P.S: If we all set the standards, as we liberate ourselves; then one day everyone else will see the light and be automatically liberated.
