I just re-stumbled upon one of the greatest quotes of all time. It got me thinking, “what’s my deepest fear?”
My deepest fear is not being rejected or lonely; that would be an incomplete truth. My deepest fear is giving myself to others. My deepest fear is allowing others to see me entirely. My deepest fear is allowing someone else to take the power from me. My deepest fear is me losing the authority. My deepest fear is not knowing what will happen when I completely give myself away. My deepest fear is LETTING GO.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measure.It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, handsome, talented and 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 were born to make manifest the glory of God within us. It is not just in some; it is in everyone. And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Marianne Williamson
