What did we do with our lives that was worthy of our having lived? That question needs to be on our minds incessantly, propelling us to be that best we can be and in the process to do what is ours to do.
We are meant to live lives of greatness, to be extraordinary in some manner. Yes, each and every one of us. However, it doesn't happen automatically; at least, not for most of us. We have to do what it takes to make it happen.
Life should be free from boredom. Boredom is a sure sign that we are not living up to our potential.
What do I want? I have been so focused on the question of who am I, that I have all but neglected this issue of what I want. Yet, it seems that this is the very question that drives the reality that I would create for myself.
I would be whom that I AM. That is always enough. I would do what I am moved to do. That too, is enough.
Each of us possess greatness inside of us. One of our challenges is to find a way to apply that greatness and share it with the world.
Everything happens when it needs to happen. There is a grand plan of consciousness that is unfolding ... in particular, the expression of spirit in flesh. We are all part of that plan. Each of us have a particular role to play ... a role for which we were designed, a role for which we came into this existence.
The web of consciousness in which we are enmeshed is incredibly rich with interconnectivity. Through this web, we are related to everyone and everything.
We have to go beyond mind to get to spirit.
In a very real way there is only ONE source, one consciousness from which we all spring. No, I can't prove that such is the case. It comes from a direct knowingness. It just feels right. In the end there can be only ONE!
Ultimately, what we hoard, we eventually lose. What we give freely comes back to us manyfold, though not necessarily in the ways we might expect.
There is much to do in the world. There are a myriad of jobs requiring a corresponding myriad of abilities. It is for us to find the jobs that are right for us. These would be the jobs that fully employ what we do best. Typically, this will allow us to do those things that we love to do. Something special, something magical happens when love enters the picture.
To create a better world, we must desire a better world and then imagine what could be. Out of this imagining will come the directives to enable what we imagine to be created, first conceptually and then physically.
It is spirit that animates us, that gives us life far beyond the breath ... that gives us soul. And ultimately, it is this soul that makes us whom that we are.
That is what life is all about ... learning whom that we are and expressing that as much as we can in the way that we live.
If we continue making the same old choices, we will continue to get the same results. If we want a different outcome we need to have the courage to try something new ... and keep trying and evaluating until we find what works for us. Wayne Hartman, Metaphysician
