I Am Enough

"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." ~ Marianne Williamson

  1. A good thing to print out and post.
    Hope you are well.

  2. I loved this. Thanks for posting it.
    I am not terribly in the know when it comes to the Bible so I didn't know all of those facts.


  3. I'm doing good now that I dropped the algebra class and have a strategy for approaching things when I return for the winter qtr.

    I confess to not reading the Bible as much as I should or being as familiar as I'd like. Glad you liked this one.
