Our deepest fear…

Our deepest fear is that we are not inadequate: Our deepest fear is that are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves…who am I not 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’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure about you.

We were born to manifest the glory that is within us. It’s not just some of us, its 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.
