It is not always easy to shine. Being in the spotlight is sometimes desireable, and sometimes not. If we could shine, and be brilliant, some of us would welcome it, while others would cringe from the attention.
Some of us are just not meant to shine; we quietly sing the backup, and offer assistance and support. Our limelight is dimmer, but we are not dimmed. Do we shine with an internal flame? Definitely. Everyone contributes to the human drama in their own way. So perhaps I should have said that some of us are just not meant to shineas brightly. We all have an inner light.
Shining that light of truth on injustice is more important than having a light shining on you. You don’t need to be prominent or famous or infamous. Do not seek publicity. EGO DOESN’T SHINE. You need to be centered not centerstage. You are illuminated from within.
