A Favorite Quote

A few posts ago, I posted a cool movie clip. It was based on this quote by Marianne Williamson. I wanted to share the proper version with you. Every time I read this quote, it just touches me beyond words.

This is for all of you who are SHY, all of you who are OUTGOING, all of you who don’t want to be noticed, all who do want to be noticed, all of you who are meek. Just a little encouragement to tell you that, however you are, it’s okay.

“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.” ~ by Marianne Williamson.
