Fear Quotes

Our Deepest Fear

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.

And its a perfect system, if you point your finger at the person or circumstance and say "you're wrong", then youre going to get to do it again guaranteed, until you point your finger at yourself and say,"why do I feel this way?"

And the answer is love, acceptance and forgiveness for yourself. And the level that you can give love, acceptenace and forgiveness to others is just a mirror of how much you're giving it to yourself.
