Being human is an incredible opportunity. You get to create yourself as you want to be. How sad it is that most of us place ourselves in a cardboard box; we place ourselves in an emotional environment of barriers and obstacles. And the biggest obstacle is our very own collection of self-demeaning opinions – erroneous notions that we cling to and insist are true.
Have you considered the fact that ‘You are a marvelously made being; a rich and majestic child of infinite intelligence with immense potential”? What if you added that fact to your collection of self-opinions?
To the extent that a person discards being “marvelously made” to his collection of self-opinions, he fences out all that is good and beautiful about himself, thus making “glorious and joyful living” alien to his experiences of life.
A tulip bulb that sits in a cardboard box remains a tulip bulb until it rots. And never is the incredible tulip – sealed within the tulip bulb – revealed. Only if the tulip bulb is taken out of the cardboard box and planted in nutritious soil, will it get to display its wondrous nature.
To the extent that you deny that you’re a “marvelously made being,” you’re like that tulip bulb sitting in a box. Some call that box a comfort zone. Yet, there’s really very little that’s comfortable about it. Other than the comfort of living an unrevealing life, where there’s no risk, there’s no joyful feeling of revealing.
Breaking out of one’s comfort zone is a matter of breaking down the flimsy cardboard walls of that box that separate him from his hidden talents, his awesome inner strength, and his mysterious powers of manifestation, his many dormant qualities.
What’s it take to break free of such a sterile environment, one that stops a person from expressing his hidden talents gloriously?
It takes a bolt of lightening to rip that box to shreds so he can be whatever he or she wants to be. He begins by being his own bolt of lightening. He dares to speak proudly, “I am a rich and majestic child of infinite intelligence. I am marvelously made. And, I am here to express and experience those marvelous qualities that lie deep within me.”
“Who spurred with true desire, plunging at once into the sacred fire.” Are you spurred with that true desire, so much so, that you are willing to perish of the old personality; willing to burn it up in the flame of your burning desire so the bright truth of the “marvelously made YOU” can blossom through?
Don’t wait for a crisis to strike before you decide to strike the walls of your box with a bolt of lightening unlike anything it’s ever felt before. Shake it to the core right now. Speak the truth about yourself in a fashion that has you FEEL IT, FEEL IT, FEEL IT. You cannot FEEL IT until you dare to REAL IT – incarnate it into your reality.
Are you ready for a major change in personality? Are you willing to do what it takes to become ONE with that ideal image that you hold of yourself, deep in your field of consciousness? That image that makes you feel fully alive? You’ve got to be willing to think and speak and act from the truth about your marvelously made nature until you can sense the tulip bulb vibrating and sprouting in the deep of you.
“I am a rich and majestic child of infinite intelligence. I am marvelously made. And, I am here to express and experience those qualities that are unique and beautiful about me.”
Here’s how you plant the above tulip bulb in nourishing soil, deep in your field of consciousness:
- Take inventory:
- What do you really like about yourself?
- What one quality do you want to demonstrate on-goingly?
- What new project can you begin that will exhibit that quality?
- What inhibiting role do you play, that it’s time to let go?
Write it all down. If you’re going to give birth to this marvelously made NEW YOU, it’s important that you don’t forget what you’re up to.
Take Action. You are a “bulb of flourishing life” just waiting to sprout and blossom on the planet. Speak this truth about yourself, in your own words, including the specific quality that you want to clearly demonstrate through you. Speak it repeatedly before you ACT, and for heaven’s sake, do take one step toward its manifestation before you do anything else today. ACT on it.
The purpose of the project you’ve committed to completing, is to prepare you to take cosmic command as you make contact with your day – trusting that your instincts and your intuition and all of the powers of infinite intelligence will guide you to the right and perfect actions. It’s frivolous to assume that all of this can happen without your full participation.
Your life belongs to you. Act as though that’s so. Allow no useless self-opinions of yesterday to take command of your action. If one tries to do so – make note of it, and simply say, “Be on your way.”
You possess what no other living creature on this planet possesses – the power to rebirth yourself anew if you’re not satisfied with the identity that is right now determining your life for you.
You are sufficient, in and of yourself, to live wonderfully and express joyfully. It is time to meet “the Master;” go look in a mirror, and then take that feeling with you as you go out into the day.
