Greatest Fear

I used to own a piece of xanga real estate. I updated it for the last time just now, directing people to this new blog. While looking through some old posts, I came across this quote that I first encountered in the film Coach Carter, then again in Akeelah and the Bee. I hope it inspires you to be all that you were created to be - to let the power within you be freed into the world.

"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 is not just in some of us; it is 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."
