Great Perspectives

A student sent me a note  about the video below that talks about how to live better and past 25 (a positive perspective on the video). As I listened to it, I was reminded of Marianne Williamson’s essay, “Our Deepest Fear” pasted below. This essay was previously read by Nelson Mandela and in movies Coach Carter, Akeelah and Bee and others. I included a clip from Akeelah and the Bee where it is included. To me both of these provide Great Perspectives about how to create interactions so everyone and everything benefits so we get the life we want, enjoy!

Our deepest fear …

“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.” —-from A Return to Love, by Marianne Williamson

— Be Well’r, Craig Becker

Be selfish, selfless, & synergistic so everyone and everything benefits!
