Our Deepest Fear
“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 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 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 – from “A Return To Love” ~
Welcome to my new blog space! I have designed this space so that I can share with you some of my favorite inspirational finds. I believe that wisdom shows up everywhere in this big crazy world. Every time I hear a bit of wisdom that is meant for me I get this surge of delight, a little quickening of my heart, an excitement of recognition. This feeling is how I know that the Universe wants me to pay attention.
The exert above by Marianne Williamson speaks to my heart. I can feel the truth in it as I read the words. Maybe you can feel it too?
