Our Deepest Fear

Yesterday, I wrote about Williamson’s believing that the calling of every woman’s heart is to become magnificent. I wrote about the insecure voice within that chides my own wanting of a larger life. And how women (myself included)  find it difficult to make these noble changes due to the things and relationships we are tied to. But Williamson tells us to change anyways. And so we shall.

After reading yesterdays blog, a friend suggested I look up Marianne Williamson‘s poem, “Our Deepest Fear.” Its past midnight, but I had the urge to read it. I Googled the poem and recognized it instantly. It came from the book, “A Return to Love.”  I wondered if I owned this book because I’ve read the poem so many times before. In wanting to read further, I started looking through every bookshelf, closet, and storage space I have. Unable to find it, and with dozens of books laid out all over the floor, my bed, bookshelves, and countertops, I grudgingly gave up my pursuit and re-read the poem online. It’s truly inspiring for those who want live a more magnificent life; and I recommend you get a copy and paste it somewhere that you’ll see it every day. Thanks, Lisa for suggesting it. Tomorrow, I’ll go buy the book!

Our Deepest Fear, by 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’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.
