A quote from Marianne Williamson

Someone recently pointed me in the direction of the work of Marianne Williamson, in particular her ‘A return to love: reflections on the principles of a “course in miracles”‘. It was after hearing a quote from her that I knew I had to order the book. It’s a very famous quote and I apologise if you’ve heard it already, but it’s worth repeating.

Here’s the quote:

“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 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; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own 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.”

I can’t wait to read the rest of the book.

Have a bloody awesome Sunday!
