Think about This


Vincent, this “shook the foundations” – and on peaceful Saturday mornings – that doesn’t happen too often! 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?”

Vincent Egoro

This message was sent to me by a friend. I am sharing because it has some very powerful truths in it;

“Many of you are looking for the magic pill that will make all your dreams and wishes come true. Consider this powerful quote: “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 manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us…

  1. Paul I had heard this a few years back. It intrigued me so much I looked up the Marianne Williamson. I am not sure what she believe exactly. They call her a “new age spiritualist” which kind of scared me. Just saying.

    • Denine, thank you. I went and had a look at her website and public commentary. Food for thought. Coincidentally Julia, GentleBreeze, asked a question about a recent post and one of Don Merritt’s posts. Both you and she raise the more difficult questions.

      I get a sense that, whilst a one to one answer has merit, the quality of your question lends itself to a post in its own right (I get the same sense with Julia’s comment). So I have a suggestion: that I take your comment here and wrap my own thoughts around that – but invite comments/conversation specific to your question. Seems to me that when the opportunity arises to bring different thoughts to the table – it can only help each of us to ponder our own responses and reactions to the “difficult” questions.

      I will do an amended copy/paste of my comment here to Julia.

      However, such a post/conversation would be unfair to do without your agreement in advance. So … back to you for your thoughts.

      • It is fine with me. I wasn’t sure if I should have said anything. because I am really not and expect on anything. But I just remember after loving that quote as do you. I went and researched her a bit. Only to find I wasn’t sure what she truly believes. seems she was more new age. which made me step back a bit and consider if everything she said in the quote is scriptural. That’s really my whole take on it. I haven’t read what the other person said yet. BeCause I am on my cell phone right now. Lord knows I am not trying to marginalize anyone. Thanks Don. More just saying be causes my friend. Blessings

      • Denine, thank you. Neither you or Julia marginalise. You both bring your love and relationship to this church. In a way which touches me deeply. I am confident others are also touched. Thank you again –
