Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

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.
- Marianne Williamson

to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
