I love this image & what it says – it’s a powerful quote by the great Marianne Williamson – who is a well-known author and speaker.
Here, it’s shown as a wall decal you can buy on Etsy through Willow Creek Inspirations…and yes, it does inspire me so I wanted to share it.
I think we should all read this every day to remember that it’s our purpose to shine…
It’s a little hard to read so here it is again…
“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.”
