Sorry, Marianne, I thought Nelson Mandella said that?
For years I’ve had this quote on my page and in my email and just learned it was actually said by Marianne Williamson… Here goes:
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 and
Actually, who are you NOT to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightenend about shrinking so that other
people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are born to make manifest the glory that is within us.
It is not in some of us,
It is in everyone.
And as we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence will indefinitely liberate others.
Marianne Williamson and The Law of Divine Compensation
This book is completely inspiring. It helps to address our limiting beliefs about money and reminds us that we are children of God, given all the gifts we need to succeed, be happy, and prosper.
The universe is the handwriting of God, and it is both self-organizing and self-correcting. Where there is lack, the universe is already planning to remove it from your circumstances. That is the Law of Divine Compensation. The only thing that can deactivate the Law is if you have more faith in the reality of lack than in the reality of the Law. ~ from The Law of Divine Compensation
Marianne Williamson can remind us all of our divine gifts
This book, based on many of Marianne’s teachings from A Course in Miracles, reminds us that we every bit deserving of success as anyone else… why? Because we wouldn’t be alive if we weren’t.
We wouldn’t be given the gift of life and the gift of co-creating with God to create a beautiful life for ourselves. Marianne reminds us that the universe will align all that is good for us, if we only align ourselves with it….with love…with belief…and with the conviction that we are just as we need to be.
We do need to surrender to God and to the universe, as we do not know what we do not know… and have faith.
I surrender to You who I am, what I have, and what I do. May my life and talents be used in whatever way serves You best. I surrender to You my failures and any pain still in my heart. I surrender to You my successes and the hopes that they contain. May the Light of Your Love shine deep within my heart and extend through me to bless the world. Amen. ~ From Marianne Williamson, The Law of Divine Compensation
