The world is a place where difference is perceived as an outsider while uniqueness is known as genius. Ultimately, these are one and the same concept and yet, they vibrate differently within the collective consciousness. The bridge that leads from considering the self as an outsider to embracing It as a unique, priceless, worthy unit is paved with moments of self-discovery. These moments are rich in virtues and each time one can pull the sense of separation towards the Truth of oneness, one may unveil the most extraordinary gift of all: the gift of inner-strength.
Claiming this gift as ours and living its presence throughout our days is like offering a kingdom to Cinderella. Inner-strength is a memory more than a learnt skill and because of it, the curriculum to master it, isn’t in lessons to learn but on one side, in wisdom to which one must reconnect and, on the other side, in Love through one must be willing to give and take.
Realize that inner-strength is the structure that supports Beauty, Creativity and visions of possibilities. Once the structure is in place, then inspiration has a space to move, be shaped and ultimately exist in a given time and space. What can be defined, can be recognized and what can be recognized can be loved with ease.
Of course and ultimately, one doesn’t have to know, to love. Yet, in the world we live it, the mind gets so involved that unless it feels in control of the circumstances, it becomes unstable. Everything unstable for the mind becomes a direct threat and all bridges built in the name of Love tend to crumble. While the mind learns to love without reference, reasons or conditions, it can be led to yield the need for frames so that it opens harmoniously and discover Love without boundaries. This Love is what God is all about. This Love is what each religion speaks about. This Love is what all great prophets have felt, understood and embodied. This Love is what we are all about, think about, dream about. Together, this Love is possible through our Unity, compassion and willingness to connect with our heart so that what we are giving to the world is what we were given when we came into this world: A space to know who we are.
