What This Famous Marianne Williamson Quote Got Wrong

“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.”

Marianne Williamson got it exceptionally RIGHT except for one CRUCIAL point.

Where she got it WRONG.

My DEEPEST fear is that not I am inadequate.

Inadequacy is my SURFACE fear.

That I am powerful beyond measure does not scare me.

Rather, it is my DEEPEST conviction.

I have never been afraid of the LIGHT of my BIGNESS.

I have only erroneously feared I would not be able to survive and integrate my DARKNESS.

My LIGHT empowers me.

To BE who I am.

To BECOME brighter every single day.

Inadequacy is your SURFACE fear, too.

Find your DEPTH.

Where your ESSENCE rests.


That FEAR can’t stain.

This is who YOU really are.

This is where YOU are MEANT to LIVE from.
