我們最深的恐懼不是我們無能。我們最深的恐懼是我們的力量超乎想像。是我們的光芒,而非黑暗,讓我們害怕。我們問自己,如果如此光輝璀璨、才華洋溢,與令人驚嘆的,那我會怎麼樣的呢?但事實是,如果妳不是這樣,那妳是什麼呢?妳是神的子女。把自己縮小並不能服務這個世界。為了避免讓別人感受威脅,而隱藏你的力量,是沒有意義的。我們本應發光發熱,如同孩童一般。我們生來就是要展現內在的神性之光。這神性之光並非僅存在於某些人心裡,它存在於每個人的內在。當我們散發了自己的光芒,我們無意識地也允許了其他人效法。當我們把自己從自我的恐懼中解放出來,我們的存在便自然地解放了他人。

~前南非總統 曼德拉

 

原文:

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.
