If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
The greatest revelation you can have is that you live life once. Many would consider such a statement to be a trite saying, instantly dismissing it and in doing so, negating a powerful tool for radical transformation.
Never ever simply “get used” to the fact that you are alive. Never ever exist on earth and yet never truly live.
Life is a precious gift: wear this truth around your neck like a scarf, every single day. Keep this truth on your lips, in your mind, and in your heart, in every situation you encounter and in every conversation that takes place.
With such a viewpoint, you will have the ability to truthfully see into the souls of others and in doing so, you’ll view anger as a protection and blame as a coat with which to cover up hurt. You will see real meaning and deeper truths and no longer respond with cross words, but with bursts of radiant light that bring healing, comfort and transformation. For this is your purpose.
The world owes you nothing. You were not created to be a drain on society, to take, to keep, and to squander. You exist for a purpose – your purpose is contribution. Quit telling yourself your ‘woe is me’ story that drains your mind, energy and conversation. Here is the truth: No one cares. The more you wallow, the less of a chance you have of experiencing the real, beautiful, intangible joy that comes from living life for real.
Everything that you see around you – that you can feel, touch or use was first created in the minds of those who believed that these things could be. Stop harping on about the way that your life is and start visualising what it could be. As we dwell upon our dreams, we are empowered to become.
You exist to give, to contribute in abundance. When you do so, you will experience the secret gift of giving.
The world has its problems. Oftentimes the horrors and atrocities that we see on our screens become too hard to bear; we gain compassion fatigue, so we block them out or we send some spare change just to ease our conscience.
To truly make a difference, start changing your own life – be the best, the biggest, the highest self. The overflow of your own change will be like a bubbling brook soaking itself upon those around you, powerfully impacting your community. Your community is the place that you should start, to give, to change, to hope, to love and as you do – you really will start to change the world.
Throw off your guilt. Discard it like the day’s rubbish: it serves no purpose.
Most of all understand this: You are beautiful. Allow this truth to sink in to your body, mind, and spirit, allow it to flow through your veins touching every organ, every tissue, every sinew, filling you with energy and power as it flows. There is absolutely nothing you can do that will ever take away from the beauty that is you.
Do not let others tell you any other truth, do not let your mind force you to believe any other lie. Do not allow any wrong previous acts to fill you with guilt. No matter what you do, you remain beautiful.
Go now and start changing worlds.
