WRITINGS

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 doesn’t serve the
world.
There is 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
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.

                                        DANCE ME TO THE END OF LOVE

                                                                                                                                            BY LEONARD COHEN


                                        Dance me to your beauty
                                        with a burning violin
                                        Dance me through the panic
                                        till I’m gathered safely in
                                        Lift me like an olive branch
                                        and be my homeward dove
                                        Dance me to the end of love

                                        Let me see your beauty
                                        when the witnesses are gone
                                        Let me feel you moving
                                        like they do in Babylon
                                        Show me slowly what I only
                                        know the limits of
                                        Dance me to the end of love

                                        Dance me to the wedding now
                                        dance me on and on
                                        Dance me very tenderly and
                                        dance me very long
                                        We’re both of us beneath our love
                                        we’re both us above
                                        Dance me to the end of love

                                        Dance me to the children
                                        who are asking to be born
                                        Dance me through the curtains
                                        that our kisses have outworn
                                        Raise a tent of shelter now
                                        though every thread is torn
                                        Dance me to the end of love

                                        Dance me to your beauty
                                        with a burning violin
                                        Dance me through the panic
                                        till I’m gathered safely in
                                        Touch me with your naked hand
                                        touch me with your glove
                                        Dance me to the end of love
