Our Deepest Fear
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,

You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the World.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won't feel insecure around you.
We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
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
