From A Return to Love : Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles" by Marianne Williamson
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inept. 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, and fabulous?" But actually, who are we 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 everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people the permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear our presence automatically liberates others."
May your own light shine today and always.
