Thought the quote Telisa posted yesterday was fitting for a few of my friends to read.
“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.”
Yep. Marianne got it right!
But what is your deepest fear? Sometimes I think I am sooo afraid of success. Something deep down tells me I do not deserve it. I have a big problem with that one. I think deep down I am simply not good "enough" to receive the blessings that are due to me.
Where in the hell did that come from? I used to think I was just humble. Now - I am not so sure.
I am also afraid of failure - so I will simply not try.
I also have another - darker fear - death. Maybe it is more the fear of the unknown. The ultimate "final review."
Just a thought...
