Our worst 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 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
other people won’t feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory
of GOD within us.

It is not just in some of us, It is in all, 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 fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
