Be Powerful Beyond Measure

"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 and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a Divine child.

Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people wont feel insecure around you. We are born to make manifest universal glory 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

Great, quote. Just one correction... I believe Nelson Mandela wrote the speech originally.
