Who Are We Not To Be?


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 frighten us. We ask ourselves,
who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
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 meant to
shine, as children do. We are born to make
manifest the glory of God 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
— Marianne Williamson.
