Our Deepest Fear...

I just love this quote from Marianne Willaimson, I hope it inspires you too.

"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's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. 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're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

  2. Assalam-alaikam Sister HA,
    Isn't it a great quote, I love the way she wrote it too (I can't find the source now), but she writes somewhere that she was just very low and was venting through her writing and the words just flowed through.
