Fear

I've been reading this passage on the back of the toilet door at the yoga studio for about 2 years now and finally looked it up this evening after coming home from a fabulous "Yoga by Candlelight" class - the perfect way to end the week...


Our Greatest Fear

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 and 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 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.

Well, sounds like I should visit the women's bathroom? Much better stuff than the crap they give us in men's bathroom...
