One of the coolest quotes I heard during Burning Man

I'm happy I was able to track this down.

“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 and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?…

“Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you…

“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.”

- Nelson Mandela*

Loves it!

(more about Burning Man later)

*Ok, apparently this quote is actually from Marianne Williamson and is wrongly attributed to Nelson Mandela.
