Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate… Marianne Williamson Quote

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate… Marianne Williamson Quote

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” ~ Marianne Williamson

There is a reason why Marianne Williamson’s quote is enormously popular. Her words speak to us, although not in an intellectual way. In fact, her words bypass our reason entirely and go straight to our hearts. She speaks of a truth we can only sense through our intuition. It is a truth that lies beyond reason.

We each have a reservoir of power, energy and untapped creativity bubbling within us. Our ability or inability to embrace our God-given talents defines our life. Williamson’s words shine a light on what we try to hide in our fear places.  She dares us to let go of our fears embrace all that we are.  We were born with these gifts, but they do not belong to us.  They belong to the world.

On the spiritual journey:

“Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.”

  1. I love this quote. My 12 year old daughter has it hanging on her bulletin board (the beginning of it). I think maybe I should read it more often . . .
