Our Deepest Fear

October 9, 2010

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

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 all meant to shine as children

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

Adapted from Marianne Williamson’s book “A Return to Love”
