This is one of my favorite positive affirmations statements:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that
we are powerful beyond measure. It is out 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 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.”
Here is an excerpt of Dr. Joseph Murray from
his book: “Mental Poisons and Their Antidotes”
Fear is a shadow of the mind held by ignorance and darkness. When you hold your fear to the light of reason and intelligence, it can’t stand the light and it disappears. Among the offspring of fear are the following:
a) Hatred, which is really inverted or misdirected love based on ignorance
b) Self-pity, which is really self-absorption. This mental poison creeps through the
psychic blood stream poisoning the springs of hope and faith.
c) Old age, fear is another mental poison. Old age is not the flight of years, but
the dawn of wisdom, truth, and beauty.
d) Loneliness, is a lack of love. The loveless seek love, but the loving find love
your mind. Their names are goodwill, kindness, gentleness, peace, patience, understanding,
