Fear !!!!

Author: 6p | Filed under: Uncategorized
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
That most frightens us.
We ask
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented,
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
playing small
Does not serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened
about shrinking
So that other people won’t feel insecure around
We are
all meant to shine,
As children do.

not just in some of us;
It’s in everyone.

We unconsciously give other people permission to
do the same.
As we’re liberated from our own fear,
Our presence
automatically liberates others.
