Liberating Others

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's 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're liberated from our own fear, 
our presence automatically liberates others.

The mystery which has been hid from ages and from generations, is now made manifest to His saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.  (Col 1:26-27)

Even the whole of creation waits expectantly and longs earnestly for the sons of God to be made manifest.   (Rom 8:19)
