Fear

This is just something to think about its by Marianne Williamson

'Our Deepest Fear is that We Are Powerful Beyond Measure '

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 and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. 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.

It may also be that we can be reckless with all that power, hence we choose not to will it. Power are for those strong enough to control it and do good for for the masa. We are not all born leaders. To be great leaders we need followers. Some are just better at being followers than the path takers. It does not propose that we exterminate the fire given but merely suggests that we are holding lesser outburst of flame that we slowly, but SURELY will share with others.

Think lighters compared to fireworks. Which one are you?

But I like how it is about Faith and God and not about Politics and world domination. It's a refreshing look at what one can achieve as we grow stronger in Spirit. There's a time for everything.
