“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”

“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”

– Nelson Mandela

“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 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 other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

– Marianne Williamson

I love these words from Marianne Williamson in her book Return to Love, and as used by Nelson Mandela in his inaugeration speech as State President at South Africa’s first Democratic Election in April 1994.

consists not so much
in the number of it’s people
or the extent of it’s territory
as in the extent
