A Challenging Perspective
By: Marianne Williamson


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 we not to be?You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't 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 are born to make manifest the glory of god that is within us. It is 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're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

These patterns we thought represented who we were. When we are ready to admit that these patterns are recorded in our bodies and in our cells, then we can understand how they are able to affect us. Once one is aware of wanting to clear out this debris, then one becomes responsible for
