We are powerful beyond measure / 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 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

– Marianne Williamson, Our Light
