– Your Life – Our Deepest Fear

Your Life – Our Deepest Fear …
This quote keeps finding it’s way into my life. Everytime I read it, I am moved. I thought I’d share it here.

Our Deepest Fear
by Marianne Williamson
from A Return To Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles

“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 is 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 are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

  1. Hi Steve, It’s nice to see Marianne Williamson being attributed to this quote. Most people think Nelson Mandela wrote it since he used it in one of his speeches, but it was Marianne’s quote.
