Our biggest fear, by Marianne Williamson

Posted on: 3 November 2008

I just had to put this up… very inspirational.

My biggest fear would probably be: I am always alone, no one needs me, no one sees me. I have to be extraordinarily kind to make up for my hidden guilt and darkness, in order for people to want to be around me. Because I need people. Do they need me, too? Can I afford to not go out of my way in terms of kindness?

“Our biggest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our biggest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure

It is our light, not our darkness that scares us the most.

We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.

There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

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 absolutely love this quote by her; my deepest fear has been in the past of being forgotten. I seem to be able to feel less like that in my present day, but it has been a long journey so far……. thank you for being who you are…….

Whatever you do, or not do, your presence here has already made such an impact on me and my life, that I shall never forget YOU! But I guess *you* made that happen, thru your writings, your kindness, and your courage IRL (from what I gather). Kudos to you, thus!

My deepest fear, was of not being seen and appreciated.

The true problem being, that *I* did not appreciate me, for all the wonderfullness I am and have. I did not trust it to be real.

Thereby I disempowered my biggest asset and energizer: meeting others and allowing our combined magic to bloom!

Thank you for giving that back to me in this safe haven.

I am venturing out more and more into offline life, to work my magic there, too : ) – trusting it is real, showing it to real flesh people… still worried they may not see or appreciate… but countering that now with an inner trust, strenthened by those I met here…

So, thank you, too… : D
