Our Greatest Fear – Marianne Williamson

Our Greatest Fear – Marianne Williamson:
it is our light not our darkness that most frightens us
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 fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There's 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 unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

—Marianne Williamson"

Can anyone name what movie this is quoted in? It was not quoted in whole but only in part! I love when the way it is quoted in the movie too; almost in a rhythmic rap form. It sounds nothing like a poem when he says it but as if it is truely his thought being spoken aloud.
If you are a attendee you should know! Maybe I should have a prize for whoever can get it!
More importantly, I hope its words inspire you.

From the desk of one who is powerful beyond measure,
