Our Deepest Fear

I was once again moved after reading the following poem, by Marianne Williamson, found at the very bottom of this blog. So I thought to post it again for all to read remind us all how special we are in the eyes of our Creator.

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
