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

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 that
other people won’t feel insecure around you

We were born to make manifest the glory of God within

It is not just in some of us, it is in everyone,

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously
give people permission to do the same

– Marianne Williamson
