Our Deepest Fear….

rainbow angelOur deepest fear is not that
We are inadequate
Our deepest fear is that we are
powerful beyond measure
It is 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 doesn’t 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 other
people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own
fear, our presence automatically
liberates others.

—–Marianne Williamson
