Request to the Universe

I am so grateful for the many blessing that have been bestowed upon me. At times it seems as if I'm ungrateful, but usually I'm just confused about things and now they are becoming more clear to me. The more awake I become the more I realize how abudant the universe actually is, how there's quite enough for all of us. As Marianne Williams says,

"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 about you. We were born to manifest the glory of god that is within us."

As a woman who sees herself in the divinity of the feminine, I would use goddess or at least god/goddess but I'm trying not to get caught up in semantics. It's just that the language we use is so powerful. But, I digress.

I'm going to leave blessings for her all over the town of Butte today in hopes that she hears my prayer and grants me one more blessing.

I love that quote! "There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure about you." That's so me! I shrink to give others room to expand. Realized a couple of years ago that my very existence gives me the right to take up space in this world. Thanks for the reminder, I needed it. :)

It is a fantastic quote. I've been guilty of doing this for much of my life - hiding the light.
May you get your blessing!

You go, goddess!

Keep on keeping on!

Do you mean to make people feel stupid? I wish you could say things in plain english so your meaning is clear. I guess I'm too dumb to understand what you're trying to say (I never was good at figuring out poems), but I'm trying to find help to stay sober.

I wonder what you are hiding, behind all those fancy words. The happy horse**** isn't helpful.

Dear Anonymous,

If you don't like it, don't freakin' read it. The happy horseshit does happen to help me.

Good for YOU. I thought the point of your blog was to help other people. I hope your writing that doesn't really say anything of substance provides the distraction you need. Please don't bill your site as the "portal" to anything by your own selfishness.
Good luck.

I have always hidden my light.. and then attracted people who would reinforce it. Sick stuff! It's definitely time to move beyond that. :)
