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 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

we are all meant to shine as children do
we were born to manifest the glory 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

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
