Have you shown up to life?
What do I mean?
Have the people around you met you? The real you?
Many people live on this earth and we never really meet them. We never see who they really are. They’re trapped in someone’s expectation of them. They’ve become someone else’s opinion of them. They never really release their true selves. They pass away having never really shown up.
Please, don’t leave this world before the world has an opportunity to enjoy and be enriched by the real you.
Who are you today?
Are you a victim of your high school grades?
Are you trapped by the peer pressure of your friends who won’t allow you to be yourself?
Are you a victim of the country club you’ve joined? Are you being who you think they’ll accept?
Who are you?
Are you enjoying the company of women who you really don’t like, but you want to be accepted by?
You don’t need someone else’s expectation or construct of you in order to get through life. That’s not life. That’s robbery.
Inside of you is trapped treasure meant to show forth the power and glory of Destiny. You are a heavenly masterpiece.
Every human being, all of us are walking buried treasure. To ignore a human is to scorn true riches.
Look in the mirror and speak aloud to your reflection, “I’m priceless! I’m full of treasure!”
Some of you think you know your spouse, but they’re not finished yet. You don’t know what they’re carrying. Their treasure hasn’t been tapped yet.
Look beyond people’s present state. They’re still being unwrapped. People are like onions. They reveal themselves one layer at a time.
One layer may reveal an alcoholic, but don’t throw them away.
Some layers, may reveal a rebellious teenager. Hang on! That’s only temporary. You haven’t yet met the great leader inside.
Some layers seem hopeless and so we reject them. But, they’re only layers.
Destiny picks up the onion, – the fugitive, the failure, the cheat – uncovers the layers and reveals the divine endowment within – the leader, the healer, the teacher.
Destiny specializes in garbage, in salvaging. Destiny takes your refuse through the refining flames of Heaven’s fire and brings about diamonds.
Some of you were told by a parent that you’d never amount to anything. All the while, Destiny laughs at such statements.
Some of you were labeled “stupid”, “slow”, “dull”, “hopeless”. Destiny is saying, “don’t believe the misconceptions of others.”
The greatest enemy of man is ignorance. It’s what we don’t know that kills us. It’s what we don’t know that destroys us. It’s what we don’t know about ourselves that actually compels us to walk away from the riches of who we truly are.
If you really understood Heaven’s high estimation of you, you’d realize you have no choice but to live out who you are, your true magnificent self.
Do us all a favor and live you. We need you and what’s buried inside you.
