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 te world
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others can feel insecure around you.
We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just some of us, it is everyone.
And as we let our light shine, we unconciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others
(Nelson Mandela 1994, inaugurale rede)
