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.
~ Marianne Williamson , taken from her book ‘A Return to Love’
I love this poem because I think its so true and inspirational, so often we are own worst doubters. If we let go and trust and truly believe in ourselves then our true lights can really shine , nothing could be more true 🙂
