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 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.”

"Our greatest fear" from her book 'A return to love'

I just watched Akeelah and the Bee. What an awesome movie! I cried through the second half... not because it was sad, nope, because it was just so uplifting. Yeah? Go ahead, call it a 'chick flick' if you must... but this 'Chick' loved it!
