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 doesnít serve the world.
Thereís nothing enlightened about shrinking so that
other people wonít feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God
that is within us.
Itís not just in some of us; itís 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.
