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 brillant, gorgeous, talented , and famous?' 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 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 consciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear,our presence automatically liberates others. Nelson Mandella inagural speech 1994
Be the Butterfly! The flap of a butterfly's wings in Brazil could set off a storm in Texas. Isn't that an amazing statement? The "Butterfly Effect" theory suggests that the power released by a butterfly's wings can amplify over time to eventually affect weather patterns thousands of miles away. Now imagine the impact of 4 million butterflies.
