Brilliant, Gorgeous, Talented & Fabulous

Museum Pick: February 23 - March 9, 2009

I read Marianne Williamson's inspirational book A Return to Love back in the 1990s and loved it. A quote from the book, often attributed to Nelson Mandela, has cropped up frequently in the years since. In 2007, I decided to set the quote to music. It almost felt like a directive from somewhere beyond myself. The quote is very powerful in the way it encourages us to recognize that sacred part in each of us that is the essence of us.

Original lyrics by Marianne Williamson, copyright 1992.

Brilliant, Gorgeous, Talented & Fabulous


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
We are all meant to shine, as children do

They know they're
Brilliant, gorgeous, talented & fabulous
Brilliant, gorgeous, talented & fabulous

Mmmmmm they shine on
Mmmmmmmm shine on & on

We were born to make manifest
The glory of God that is within us
And it's not just in some of us,
It's in everyone, everyone, everyone

To be brilliant, gorgeous, talented & fabulous
Brilliant, gorgeous, talented & fabulous

And as we let our own light shine
We unconsciously give others permission to do the same
As we are liberated from our own fear
Our presence liberates others

To be brilliant, gorgeous, talented & fabulous
Brilliant, gorgeous, talented & fabulous

Mmmmmm so shine on
Mmmmmmmm shine on & on

And be brilliant, gorgeous, talented & fabulous
Brilliant, gorgeous, talented & fabulous
