"Our biggest 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 and fabulous?

Actually, who are you NOT to be? 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 were born to make manifest the glory of Spirit 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)



* NOTE: This is a slightly modified version of a quotation that appeared in Marianne Williamson's book, "A Return to Love". I modified it specifically so that the concepts espoused in it would be palatable and applicable to everyone in the world, regardless of spiritual or religious orientation.

Nelson Mandela quoted it in a speech and many people now incorrectly attribute the quote to him. For Marianne's original version, read this.
