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 wont 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 is not just in some of us; it is 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, A Return To Love; HarperCollins, 1992)

I love that quote. I'll have a real post soon. Sorry, I keep forgetting about this blog. [Not like it matters, no one really reads it.]
Hmm, well if anyone /does/ read this. You should comment and tell me your deepest fear :]
