Our Deepest Fear (ASL Version)

 

 

Some of you may already be familiar with Marianne Williamson’s poem “Our Deepest Fear.” This is an ASL (sign language) version of it performed by my boyfriend Mark Brudney and Deborah Cole Micek.

 

 

 

  

 

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?

 

You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other

people won’t feel insecure around you.

 

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.

 

~ Marianne Williamson
