As I walk the road of life;
At every corner, every crossroad- There you stand.
I quiver at your presence.
But wait! ‘What is that I see?’
‘Is that my life, shining with glorious possibilities?’
I feel excitement, a sense of purpose.
‘Fear my friend, what news today?’
I hear your words; I take heed;
I walk on by.
‘Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live.’ —Dorothy Thompson
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
‘There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.’—-Paulo Coelho
‘I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.’ ——————-Frank Herbert
‘There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life, when we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.’—-John Lennon
‘If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.’ —Wayne Dyer
