Our Greatest 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'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
