Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?…
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened
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.
