Our Deepest Fear


Our Deepest Fear
By Marianne Williamson

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.


Just a little inspiration for all of us.  May you continue to shine your heartlights!

Shine On!

Do you grapple with the concept of fitting in or not fitting in?  You know, in cliques, in groups, in your neighborhood, at work, at school?  Do you wear certain clothing, buy a certain type of car, live in a certain neighborhood because you want to fit in with the group that you admire?  I’m just asking as I know for teenagers and some adults alike, the idea of fitting in is so important that they’d do anything to melt alongside those whom they admire.

But you don’t have to ~ you know that don’t you?  You are UNIQUE ~ JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE ~ so when you SHINE your special light ~ like a star ~ you illuminate those around you!  You give them courage to shine their unique lights on the world!

Perhaps you shy away from the limelight?  Well, how about for one day,

you allow your Unique Star Light to shine a bit ~ for me ~ please?

The Universe, the blog-o-sphere and I will be be waiting in happy anticipation!

Come On ~
