Our Deepest Fear

Last week Marilyn shared with our Life Coaching group a wonderful piece by Marianne Williamson from her 1992 book, “Return To Love.”  Many people inaccurately attribute this passage to former South African President Nelson Mandela due to his inclusion of its wisdom in his Presidential Inauguration Address.  

Our Deepest Fear

It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.

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

From The Buddha

What is your motivation?  What do you desire?

The Four Unwholesome Desires/Cravings:

1) Sex;

2) Fame;

3) Power; and,

4) Wealth.

From an Unknown Contributor


“When I do good I feel good, when I do bad I feel bad, and that’s my religion.”

~ Unknown (Often misattributed to Abraham Lincoln)

** Note – This quote was discovered on the Instagram page of @talia.witkowski attributed to Abraham Lincoln. We always seek to double check the source of the quotes we post. Our search found that it is likely President Lincoln did not originate this phrase. In the book “Herndon’s Lincoln: The True Story of a Great Life, volume III, chapter XIV” written by Lincoln’s friend and law partner William H. Herndon, Herndon recounts Lincoln attributing this quote to an old man named Glenn in Indiana. As such, we attributed the quote to Unknown because there are lots of Glenns in Indiana. Thanks, @talia.witkowski for turning us onto to such an Amazing Thought.

From the Buddha


“All experiences are preceded by mind, having mind as their master, created by mind.”

From Jesus – Happy Easter!


“No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”

Matthew 5:15-16 NLT

~ Jesus
