Our Biggest Fear

5 posts in this topic

The end of Leos' video about fear made me think of this quote that I wanted to share with you: 

"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 frightens us.
We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world. There is 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 permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

Love it-- a fun aside, all my life people would ask, "What would you do if you knew you could not fail." My soul's instant response has always been, "I already know I cannot fail... now what the eff do I want to do?"
