Our deepest fear

“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.”

(Marianne Williamson)

    I was actually Googling around finding if anyone has taken the name “Penglipur Lara” as their blog title, and so here I am. That wasn’t much of a surprise.

    But this post is certainly a surprise. All this while I thought I’m the only person who has been holding to Marianne Williamson’s A Return To Love. I’m glad that I’m not the only one =D
