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.

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.

we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

and nights into a hellish turmoil.

as good and as bad as ever.
