Quote :
Our Deepest Fear
by Marianne Williamson

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 automaticlly liberates others.

This is such a strong piece that I feel it should be a sticky. It is the truth for so many including myself. Each day I must choose and remember I AM brilliant, gorgeous, talented, & fabulous! It's not always an easy task when we are conditioned by the media, parents, friends, society to think otherwise.

I don't feel she is refering necessarily to a religious God but rather the Universal Connection.
