Our deepest fears hold our salvation

“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?

Your playing small doesn’t 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.

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

Just a guy with an opinion and some time on my hands trying to find out where the sidewalk really does end.
