Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
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, fabulous ?

Actually, who are you NOT to be ?

You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is 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 is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.

And as we let our own Light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

~ Marianne Williamson ~

6. How wonderful
I needed to hear this (again). I just copied it and sent it around to certain special friends. I used to go hear Marianne every month when she spoke at an Episcopal Church in Hollywood. A long time ago. This takes me back. She is an amazing soul!
