not our darkness That most frightens us. We ask ourselves Who am I to be brilliant. Your playing small Does not serve the world. It is our light. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. There s nothing enlightened about shrinking So that other people won t feel insecure around you. gorgeous.A Prayer.. talented. who are you not to be? You are a child of God. fabulous? Actually. . Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

A Prayer. It s in everyone. We are all meant to shine. And as we let our own light shine. As children do. It s not just in some of us. We were born to make manifest The glory of God that is within us.. Our presence automatically liberates others. We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we re liberated from our own fear. (c) Marianne Williamson joseph .
