Rene Descartes, a French mathematician, a scientist and a philosopher said, “I think therefore I am.” The question then becomes, “Who do you think you are?” When you describe yourself – is your description an epic narrative or a simple definition?
If you were to write an inscription for your headstone, what would you love it to say?
If you were asked to write a simple memorial speech to be read at your funeral, what would you include?
These are mighty powerful questions; they reveal a lot about you, about who you have created yourself to be, and in turn they reveal what your life has been like. And I can promise you this – your world has unfolded in perfect harmony with that description which you’ve considered true about you. The world, being only a mirror, can only reflect back that which you projected outwardly.
Don’t fool yourself. You cannot change the world in which you live until you change the “I AM” in which you live in the world. The evolution of your identity gives you the blossoming of your life-story. You always have the power to invent yourself anew. So what stops you?
The pulse of the unseen you lay deep in the seen you. Be not a melting pot of yesterday’s tomfoolery. Dwarf no longer those hidden talents that want to come out and express through you. You are a fountainhead of light, a pasture of dreams; it is your time now to appease those unappeasable hungers that stir deep inside of you.
All happenings in your outer world are timed with infinite precision to reflect what’s happening in your inner world. Now that you know this, what will you do? I suggest you begin by writing a list of all the qualities of character that you want as part of your identity. I’ve got news for you. If you wrote it down, then it is already a part of you; you need only resurrect it. Keep going!
