What is Our Deepest Fear?

I selected this beautiful poem to remind you how wonderful and powerful you are. It is so easy to loose sight of our strengths and reality. We live in this diluted illusion that is deceitful and destructive. However, when we experience a glimpse of our wonders, and  remember our natural state, every thing flows easily and effortlessly.

“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’s 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’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 like flowers in the wind.”-Nelson Mandela
