one of my favorite quotes

first, sorry for the delay in updating this place. We were in Houston last week doing a travel clinic and those weeks are always nuts.

Anyway, I’m back in Austin and have some cool stuff to share with you. But first, I wanted to share one of my favorite quotes of all time. Are you doing this? Are you playing small? Step into who you are and what you can REALLY do. Greatness is inside all of us. And yes, that includes 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? 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.

    Dear Rick,

    An inspiring piece of motivational literature, to be sure. My wife and I encourage our daughter to read it every day and inculcate the words into her psyche. The unfortunate difficulty is that the world abounds with those persons who take a perverse delight in belittling others – a sort of democratising downstream, if you will.
    With the advent of the internet came the pernicious predeliction of others to use the ether as an anonymous means of bullying and beating down those of us who truly believe that there is a greater good to which we can and ought and deserve to aspire. Although physical violence is just as (or even more so) prevalent than in days gone by, the internet now gives some people the anonymous power to wreak havoc on those who do indeed have the talent and/or inner desire to excel and exceed the norms of present-day society – regrettably, some of those persons do not have the mental or spiritual fibre to withstand “…the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune..” and, as a result, fall within the safe confines of the pack. The end result? Watch and read the news, there are countless examples of the fall-out.
    However, on a happier note, I am pleased to both see and experience the multitude of benefits that flow from the Egoscue Method – I have had the enormous good fortune to have access to Pete’s books, your articles and others (such as Matt Whitehead’s) and, being unable to avail myself personally of personalised service, I can (thank God) utilise my thinking and reasoning to follow a programme or three which give me a continuing appreciation of my body, my mind and my place in the world.
    Keep up the excellent work.
    Cheers.
    Bradley Knowles
