Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

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

is stingless indeed,
