“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 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 ALL 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 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”
The above inspired me years and years ago, and explained jealousy and begrudgery to me in my innocence…not understanding when attacks came that were based on critical and judgemental peoples own insecurities.
Love is strong as death, and jealousy as cruel as the grave….SONG OF SOLOMON
