A Message From The Creator

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.
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 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 are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

    This is just beautiful! We’re all meant to be who God wants us to be 🙂

  6. *singing to myself…off key* ‘This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine. This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine. This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it SHINE’! Thank you for reminding me it’s ok to glow a bit!

  11. Love this! It’s timeless. As a friend said recently “we go out into the world not to be who the world wants us to be, but to be who God made us to be.” Amen!
