Our Biggest Fear

Postby Sabina » Tue Mar 01, 2011 6:17 am

Our biggest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our biggest 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 and fabulous?

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 be insecure around you.
We were born to make magnificent the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us, it is 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 fears, our presence automatically liberates others.

Nice quote... a little dramatic and powerful music, some athletes practicing their sport and this quote being narrated on top of it all and you have a nice athletic wear commercial...

Our biggest fear is are we going to fulfil our purpose within that light, are we going to leave light behind us.
And not many know the slogan: Carpe diem, carpe noctem, carpe vitam". As far as I know, Sabina is familiar with these words, theoretically and practically.

That's an interesting quote there. For me my biggest fear is that when your alone that's hurt.
