What is Our Deepest Fear???...

Our Deepest Fear 

by spiritual teacher, author and lecturer Author Marianne Williamson from 'A Return to Love'

What holds us back in our lives is our fear and sometimes when you take a very close look, we find out that your fears aren't exactly what you thought they were.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It's our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
But actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn't serve the world.

There's 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 all of us. And as we let our own light shine,
we subconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

So it's holy work to move past your own fear.
It doesn't just help you. It helps the world.
