Our Deepest Fear Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson conveys a powerful message in this passage, Our Deepest Fear, taken from her book - A Return to Love.The words encourage and inspire you to overcome your fear and embrace love.

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 God.

Your playing small

Does not serve the world.

There's nothing enlightened about shrinking

So that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine,

As children do.

We were born to make manifest

The glory of God that is within us.

It's not just in some of us;

It's in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine,

We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we're liberated from our own fear,

Our presence automatically liberates others.

~ Marianne Williamson ~

This passage is often erroneously attributed to Nelson Mandela.
