When I first saw the quote below, I instantly fell in love with it.  I fell in love with it because it captured so well one reason for allowing ourselves to grow and expand spiritually.  The quote reads like this:

“The highest achievement in human consciousness is the extent to which you believe in your own being . . .  It’s not the life that you live, it’s the courage you bring to it.”     Yogi Bhajan

To what extent do you believe in your own being?
