♫When we let our light shine...

A favorite quote, and something I continue to forget to live by.

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 frightens us most. We ask ourselves,"who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?" 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 people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. Its not just in some of us; its in all of us. When we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we liberated from our own fears, our presence automatically liberates others.

Agreed. Let your light shine and it will be contagious and cause others to shine as well.

Good quote!
