Our Deepest Fear

Updated: Feb 18

Excerpted from Nelson Mandela’s Inauguration Speech:


Our Deepest Fear is not that we are

Inadequate.

Our Deepest Fear is that we 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 born to make Manifest the Glory

Of God that is within us.

It is not just in

Some of us; it is 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.
