This piece of art has always inspired me ever since i watched Akeelah and the bee. It would be selfish to keep such a powerful poem all to myself when i know someone out there needs this kind of inspiration. Right about this minute; not only to move on from comfort zones, but also to make use of their abilities to the fullest. then and only then with the undying hope, will you find your defination of life.
Our Deepest Fear
“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 is 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 other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
