I am not a religious person in the sense that I don't follow a religion. I have been through every phase of believing and not believing and now sit in a place somewhere in the middle. I don't believe in organised religion and I don't believe there is nothing after life.  Aside from the mention of god in this quote from Marianne Williamson, I agree whole heartedly with what she says. Please read and feel free to comment. 

“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 around you. We are all 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. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”   - Marianne Williamson
