Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

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.
