Our Deepest Fear

After this afternoon’s tweet: 

why is it that positive potential and opportunities can be so overwhelming? breathing through it…(or trying to)

I was told to look up this quote.  So I did.  Below is the quote in full plus a cool animation video for it.  The quote is originally by Marianna Williamson but after some research, it appears it’s been used in a few movies as well.  (I think that’s where the video dialogue came from.)

“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. 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 were all meant to shine as children do. 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.” – Marianna Williamson

    By the way, that was me, tweeting from my Berklee Alumni acct. Whoops. I'll make sure to keep them separate from now on. Hope you liked the quote!
