Our worst 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 is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people
won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifes the glory of God within in. It is not just in some of us, it is 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 "
This to me is an incredibly inspiring poem, some people say it was written by Nelson Mandela others say it was written by someone else ................ ?
