Our Deepest Fear

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 brillant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are we not to be.
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn't 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, its in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconciously give other people permision to do the same.
As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates us.

My deepest fear is that I won't take my self as far as I should. I'm inherently lazy both physically and mentally and always satisfied with above achievements when I could have done better if I applied myself.

By the way, I'm just checking in, neglect my ranting.
