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 frightens us most.

We ask ourselves,

“Who am I to be so brilliant?

Gorgeous, talented and fabulous?”

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God

Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking

So that other people

Won’t feel insecure around you.

Were were born to make manifest

The glory of god that is within us

It is not just some of us

It’s in everyone!

As we let our light shine,

We unconsciously give to other people

Permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear

Our presence automatically

Liberates others.

Thank you to Marianne Williamson for this profound statement!
