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 and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?

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 about you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to 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 are
liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically
liberates others.

Marianne Williamson

How very powerful. This came from a movie I watched today called:”Akeelah and the Bee” It is about an 11 year old that wins the National Spelling Bee. How she gets there is the basis of this poem. It is quoted in the movie as her inspiration.  For some reason this made me think of my granddaughter. My heart’s desire is for her to follow her dream and her heart. I wish she could see this movie, I bet she would be shedding tears too. (Yeah Mom-Mom cried! LOL)  Susan Michelle this is for you. I love ya!!!
