“I used to be afraid of the dark until I learned that I am light and the dark is afraid of me.”
– Ephesians 5:8
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 is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not 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 is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
From the movie, COACH CARTER, TIMO CRUZ OUR DEEPEST FEAR
“Nothing gives one person so much advantage over another as to remain cool and unruffled under all circumstances.”
– Thomas Jefferson
Link To Speech
“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out — Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”
– Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)
