For Karen: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate…”

“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’s 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 others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
~ Marianne Williamson

Today’s post is dedicated to Karen P. who wrote the brave and beautiful post “The Secret Keepers” yesterday on childhood sexual abuse and trauma. She has asked us all to share it. Because she is my friend, I am doing so. Because the information may help others in need, I am asking you to do the same. Thank-you, Christy
