You are Precious!


image0191919

You are a distinctive and individual expression of a Creative Force. You are not a blueprint or a carbon copy or a ditto of anyone past, present or future. You are you and there is no one quite like you in the world.

You don’t look exactly like anyone else, you don’t live exactly like anyone else. There are things you can do better than anyone else can do them, and there are qualities and talents that no one else can possess in exactly the same way that you do. There are thoughts that are your own special revelation. That which makes you YOU is personal, unique and exclusive. All of this is a reflection of a world and a life within.

Talk about how to be a success! The successful person is simply the one who does his best with the things he can do better than anyone else.

Talk about living well! Who lives better than the one who is true to his own inner light?

Talk about being interesting! What is more interesting than the person who is being himself?

Talk about how to be happy! The happy, self-unfolded people are those who, with a will to believe in the world and the life within, have found that the secret of really getting the most out of life is to make the most of the qualities that are innately their own…

This inner world grows as we will to believe in it. It is not through searching or feverish groping that we enter in to it. It is through the gateway of our will to believe. You will to believe that because you are an individual expression of God there is purpose, real and meaningful, in your life, and you will to believe that to achieve this purpose you are also equipped with the talent and potential necessary for its achievement. Will to believe it!

There is that within each of us that makes us great – I do not mean greatness in the sense of getting one’s name in the headlines or making a million, but greatness in the sense of coming to terms with God and life. We might call it getting hold of a guiding principle and making life count in terms of what we are and have and want to be. For it is the originality in each of us and not our uniformity which gives life its deepest meaning.

In this world within, your world, you are the most important figure. There is a place that no one else can fill. There is an influence that no one else can impart. There is a life that no one else can live quite as well as you can live it. What you do with your life within, in terms of self-realization, self-awareness, self-denial and self-expression, is the greatest challenge that can come to you.

Success

We all hit bottom. Right now I feel like I am at the bottom. Do I accept defeat or do I fight back, pushing back against pressure to conform and be yourself in the process? I bounce back. As high as I can! Away from the people who want to talk you down, out of your dreams. I don’t hear them anymore. Even when it’s my near and dear loved ones. Satan attacks the mind, heart and your words through where it hurts the most.

It’s not right to shout back at your mother when she is unconsciously registering doubt in you when all you want her to have is faith. You need someone to have faith in you. But it isn’t completely necessary, because Jesus has faith in you. He had so much faith that He gave us the benefit of the doubt always and gave us free will, even when He knew we could go from bad to worse. That’s because He had faith in us. As such, we should never let the “bottom” stick us up to it but keep jumping as high as we can to get over the slump.

Hope Always Returns at Dawn

When dawn comes it brings with it renewal and hope. Things don’t look as black as they seemed during the night. You dry your tears and prepare yourself for the fight all over again and look forward to victory. At least to die trying! Why? Because, Jesus loves me still!
