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, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of [your god/s].

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others will not feel insecure around you.

We are born to make manifest the glory of [our god/s] within us.

It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.

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

As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
