“The soul is programmed for greatness of mission. When we are dissociated from that ray of light, we descend into darkness. Much unhappiness in this world is due to the fact that people are failing to perform the greatness of their missions, and they know it.
Each of us has such a mission, for each of us is a child of God. Yet in failing to ask God what that mission is, and in failing to make ourselves available to Him so He might guide us to do it, we fall into the neurotic patterns of a soul that does not recognize itself or remember why it’s here.
In my book A Return to Love, there’s a paragraph that begins, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” That one paragraph, often misattributed to Nelson Mandela, has become very well known. And why? Because it points to the ego’s resistance—as well as the soul’s mission—to fully claiming the greatness of our potential as children of God.”
