“Linda Martella-Whitsett says some pretty audacious things: the mundane is as lofty as the spiritual, enlightenment is temporary, and GOD is not a deity. Her most audacious statement is also the richest and truest: you are Divine Identity. Got that! Read Divine Audacity and embrace the practices and you can’t help but start showing up as who you really are—the light of the world.” —Janet Conner, author of Writing Down Your Soul and The Lotus and the Lily

Experience Oneness with the Divine and Light Up the World

On the publication of her first book, Larry Dossey, MD, author of Prayer Is Good Medicine, wrote: “Martella-Whitsett is a wise guide."

Her new book makes the audacious claim that each of us can be “the light of the world” Jesus instructed his followers to be. Martella-Whitsett offers a path for living a deep and authentic life outside of the strictures of traditional religious categories. A refreshing approach, in essence, on how to be spiritual without being religious.

We need to jettison the idea of a God who is out there and above us. God is not a super-human who gives and takes, punishes and rewards. God does not require human suffering and repentance.

We truly find God when we go inside to connect with divine light, realize our oneness with God and others, and let our light shine in the world. Martella-Whittset looks at what “divine light” is and how it is both audacious and normal to claim it for ourselves. Next she introduces us to 12 spiritual powers we can all develop and learn to use on a daily basis: faith, understanding, will, imagination, zeal power, love, wisdom, strength, order, release, and life itself. When we consciously shine our spiritual powers on ourselves, not only are our lives improved, but all of humanity can be enriched and transformed.

Let your light shine!
