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 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.... 
when 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.
