‘I believe in Me
Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our greatest 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 doesn’t serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
As children do … We are meant to shine.
As we let our Light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.’
Return to Love. Marianne Williamson

D H Lawrence
‘The most self-destructive thought that any person can have is thinking that he or she is not in total control of his or her life.’
