Our Deepest Fear

A Return to Love, 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 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 is 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.

 

 

With this poem from Ms . Williamson, I will leave you portraits taken from a short stay at the beach.

 

One of those two nights , I sat silently under the stars. I thought , maybe the Creator is the stars too , dressed in fancy lights to attract us into thinking deep. Ships passed by and I was there like one of the sand grains , so little but strong by the shore. Strong to remain and be the self I desire.

 

The above poem reflects that night’s contemplation. Be empowered and know that your strength is what brought you where you are now,  a place so far,  you made it. Now here are the portraits I leave you.
