Poem: Our Deepest Fear

Posted On: August 9, 2015

Have you read the poem Our Deepest Fear by Marianne Williamson before?

I love this poem so much that it has been my intention for a long time to recite this and inspire the world.

I decided to do so with two other wonderful ladies.

They are: Angela Ognev and Natalie Leroux.

You can watch it here.

This is our gift to the universe. Please reshare it if you like this video.

Our Greatest Fear — Marianne Williamson

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 does not serve the world.

There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other

people won’t feel insecure around you.

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.

— Marianne Williamson

Often said to have been quoted in a speech by Nelson Mandela. The source is Return to Love by Marianne Williamson, Harper Collins, 1992.
