Wendy Farley

From The Wounding and Healing of Desire by Wendy Farley ....

"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 frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talanted and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There is 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 when 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."
- Marianna Williamson, A Return to Love, as quoted in Nelson Mandels's 1994 Inaugural Speech

Hi Paula. Yes, it's so positive - sort of the opposite of how I usually feel :-)
