Die größte Angst – Marianne Williamson

* * *

Die größte Angst

 

Unsere größte Angst ist nicht, unzulänglich zu sein.
Unsere größte Angst besteht darin, unermesslich mächtig zu sein.

Unser Licht, nicht unsere Dunkelheit, ängstigt uns am meisten.
Wir fragen uns, wer bin ich überhaupt,
um strahlend, bezaubernd, begnadet und phantastisch sein zu dürfen?
Wer bist du denn, dass du das nicht sein darfst?
Du bist ein Kind Gottes.
Es dient der Welt nicht, wenn du dich klein machst.
Sich herabzusetzen, nur damit unsere Mitmenschen sich nicht verunsichert fühlen,
hat nichts mit Erleuchtung zu tun.
Uns allen ist es bestimmt, wie Kinder zu strahlen.
Wir wurden geboren, um die Herrlichkeit Gottes in uns zu verwirklichen.
Es ist nicht nur in einigen Menschen, sondern in jedem von uns.
Und wenn wir unser Licht leuchten lassen,
geben wir damit anderen unwillkürlich die Erlaubnis, dasselbe zu tun.
Wenn wir losgelöst sind von unserer eigenen Angst,
wird unsere Anwesenheit andere befreien – ganz ohne unser Zutun.

Zitate von Marianne Williamson

  • Bis wir nicht die dunkle Seite eines Menschen kennen gelernt haben, wissen wir nicht wirklich, wer er ist.
    Bis wir ihm nicht seine dunkle Seite verziehen haben, wissen wir nicht wirklich, was Liebe ist.
Marianne Williamson (*1952) US-amerikanische visionäre spirituelle Lehrerin, politische Aktivistin, Referentin, Autorin, Illuminata. A Return to Prayer, Riverhead Trade, 1. November 1995


Englische Texte – English section on The deepest fear

  Our deepest fear – Marianne Williamson

* * *

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.1
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's 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're liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

Quotes by Marianne Williamson and Nelson Mandela

  • There is a difference between romance and love. Often the true path of love begins only when romance has begun to taper off, for love is the capacity to see light when darkness has begun to eclipse it. Love is easy when romance still lights everything in shades of pink, when the experience of a relationship is like the canvas of a sweet Impressionistic painting. Once the reality of our wounding reveals the darkness still lurking in all of us, romance might die, while true love does not. Marianne Williamson (*1952) US American spiritual teacher, political activist, visionary, lecturer, author, Illuminata. A Return to Prayer, Riverhead Trade, 1. November 1995

 

  • Until we have seen someone's darkness, we don't really know who they are.
    Until we have forgiven someone's darkness, we don't really know what love is. Marianne Williamson (*1952) US American spiritual teacher, political activist, visionary, lecturer, author, Illuminata. A Return to Prayer, Riverhead Trade, 1. November 1995

 

  • We enter into a covenant that we shall build the society in which all South Africans, both black and white, will be able to walk tall, without any fear in their hearts, assured of their inalienable right to human dignity – a rainbow nation at peace with itself and the world. Nelson Mandela (1918-2013) leading South African anti-apartheid activist, prisoner for 27 years during apartheid, first black president of South Africa (1994-1999), Inaugural Address, Pretoria, South Africa, 10. May 1994

Courage to stand up for one's beliefs

Briefly before Marianne Williamson was about to start her lecture she was informed:
First Lady Laura Bush is among the audience. Williamson wondered if she would bog down or give her speech regarding her view on President George W. Bush's politics whatsoever.
She decided to honor her stance even when facing an awkward situation.
She took care to refrain from personally demonizing the sitting President Bush or embarrassing his wife in public.
At the end of her talk shortly before shaking hands she was about to say to Laura Bush that she felt sorry, if she had offended her in any way. Laura Bush stopped her before she could open her mouth and repeated twice, "You did great. You did great".
