Beyond permission, free of pleasing, not as a prize.
Dimming your light to fit or please
Is far from being an act of kindness.
It might dim the un-comfortability with others
But will ignite a war inside you.
Shine for love,
Shine as love.
Dimming your light as a punishment,
Or because you think you are not worthy,
Is a blasphemy,
An energetic suicide.
Let light flow.
Shine all ways
Do not wait for someone to love you,
Do not wait for the audience to come.
Love loves light.
There is no need for a reflecting mirror,
To confirm your rays.
No need for a single, silent permission,
That says you are beautiful, wise, and magical
to shine bright.
