Trivia Tales II – Our Deepest Fear

April 22, 2008

The following lines,a variation of which appears in the movie Coach Carter,
has been wrongly attributed to Nelson Mandela.

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.

The Original author of these lines is Marianne Williamson, in the book “A Return to Love”. Very inspiring, very much what I empathise with.
Just a trivia to inspire..
