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 and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so other people do not 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 is not just within some of us, it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people around us permission to do the same.
And as we are liberated from our own fears, our presence automatically liberates others.
