Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are
powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness
that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be
brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about
shrinking so that other people
won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest
the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us, it’s in Everyone.
And, as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give others
permission to do the same
As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically
from ‘A Return To Love’ (1992) by Marianne Williamson
