November 5 – Daily Feast
Secretly, we are afraid others will see what we know is true – that we don’t have what it takes. The Cherokee says we are not u wo hi yu – we lack confidence and we suspect others can see it. But no one can do everything – and, even if they can, they seldom do it. What we fear, others fear. Our needs are others’ needs. Our thoughts, our worries, though hidden from view, are not in the heart of just one person – but all. There’s no need for a stumbling block. We may not be superhuman but we are spirit, and spirit has no limits. Spirit is not dwarfed by circumstances. It has all power and makes us worthy.
