“Dealing with our shadow is a complex but guaranteed journey back to love. Not just love of another, but love for each and every characteristic that lives within you and within me—a love that allows us to embrace the richness of our humanity and the holiness of our divinity. Having faced our own internal demons, we are filled with peace and compassion in the presence of other people’s dark side. We can forgive and let go of our demeaning judgments and our resentful heart. We can tap into the humility of Gandhi and the tolerance of Martin Luther King, Jr., and draw forth the strength and the courage to deal with the issues that haunt us. “There but for the grace of God go I” takes on a whole new meaning when we can view evil through the universal lens of our humanity.”
Excerpt From: Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson & Debbie Ford. “The Shadow Effect”
For those of you doing your inner work, I suggest reading this book. It has been, in my opinion, one of the most enlightning books that I have read this year.
