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.

i might be a hard nut (read: ass)

but i don’t meant to be
i just enjoy it when people are being who they are, instead of fabrications of the self God ordained them to be

i asked a friend earlier, doesn’t it feel better to just be yourself?

his response: well….

but i get it - we’re all acting like hamsters running on the wheel, until we realize we were meant to fly
