Such a wonderful quote...I melt every time I hear it or read it!

Friday, August 20, 2010

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 frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are we 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 light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fears, our presence automatically liberates others.

Even if you are not a believer in God...it speaks volumes

    I have read this before, but it is good to be reminded.

    We seem to be so into being in control, that when we find we are not, we think we are inadequate.

    Instead, we should reflect on what we do, and who we are that really is important and wonderful.

    Thanks for posting this.
