Our Greatest Fears
Marianne Williamson

Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frighten us. We ask ourselves, “who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?” Actually, who are you not to be? 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 were born to make manifest the glory within us. It is not just in some; it is in everyone. And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
