Tiny Book, Borrowed Words.

Colors & doodles from me, words from Marianne Williamson:

“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?

who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There’s 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’s not just in some of us;
it’s 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.”

    1. oh that’s so sweet, thank you Carol. These words make me melt every time. Especially the ‘permission to others’ part. Reminds me how joined up we all are, how similar, how we’re in this together to support each other.
