Darkness and Light

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?...

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you... As we let our own Light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.  As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
