You Are Random Beauty

I read this quote today from Steven Pressfield‘s book, Do the Work, and it blew me away.

“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, 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 all meant to shine, as children do. 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 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

I love the part about “your playing small”. It’s such an eye-opener. How many beautiful, talented, thoughtful, caring people ‘play small’ because maybe, deep down inside, they think they’re nothing short of worthless? You deserve better.

 

P.S. Watch this amazing amazing video. I honest to God just found it randomly on Youtube and it blew me away.
