“We do no one any favors ‘hiding our light’ and pretending to be ‘smaller than we are.’ When the creative power moving through us asks us to expand, we would rather contract, calling it more comfortable- it isn't really. We are spiritual beings, and when our spirit grows larger, so must we. There will be no comfortable resting in yesterday's definition of ourselves. It is spiritual law that as the Great Creator is always exploring, experiencing, and expanding through its creations, we must cooperate or feel the pitch of spiritual dis-ease. We can try to play small, but if the universe has big plans for us, we are better off cooperating than resisting.” -Nelson Mandela/Julia Cameron
