“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 are all meant to shine, as children do. 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.” – Marianne Williamson.

I absolutely love this quote, and after having read it for the first time a few years ago, it played a pivotal role in helping me to forgive and accept myself for who I was back then, and others around me. So if  you resonate with this quote, and have anger, resentment, or any negative charge towards somebody (even yourself), this video is definitely one to watch.

Marianne shares her thoughts about forgiveness with Oprah, who reminisces over a past grudge, and what advice was given to her.

Do you have a quote that has changed the course of your life?
