“We didn’t fence you in. The smallness you feel comes from within you. Your lives aren’t small, but you’re living them in a small way. I’m speaking as plainly as I can and with great affection. Open up your lives. Live openly and expansively!”
In other words, live compassionately, graciously and all-encompassing. “Smallness” comes from within us, and not from life, has nothing to do with life. When our mind can’t comprehend the miraculous thing that is the miracle of life, allowing grace, bliss, and power to awe us, we criticize or dismiss what we don’t understand and shy away from the unknown. Rules, limits, regulations, and discipline become a burden only when we’re forced to obey and understand in our own power, which we simply cannot do.
Through mindfulness, prayer, self practice, self love, we have freedom and life, purpose and power, joy and peace.
When you are reflecting love and revealing the wide-open, spacious life love brings as you pass through each step, each breath, some people will be drawn to life and love through you. They will see something different about you, something supernatural, a glimpse of what life really is. Other people may try to silence you or shut you down either because they claim to know the truth, or because they don’t or understand why you’re so happy!
Living large through the power of your spirit empowers you to move into all life has and compels you to speak the truth about who you are, what life is, and how good it is. Living large, choosing to live large opens doors in your life.
I desire to live the large life you have planned for me universe. I recognize that I can’t do this in my own strength, through my body, but through the power of Spirit. Help me to shine and live with authenticity.
