Remembering Nelson Mandela

The message, that Nelson Mandela went into transition last night, made me re-feel the gratitude and admiration I have for this great soul and all he has done for the world. It is said, that he cited the following quote attributed to Marianne Williamson, in any case he truly proved and lived it in my eyes. A great soul that all of us can learn from…thank you, thank you, thank you…

“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.”
