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
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 Where All Meant To Shine Like Children Do.
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 Presents Automatic Liberates Others........
