At some point in our lives, most of us have stopped to wonder…”Who am I?” I don’t mean what you do, if you have a six pack or knew Tupac, who you’re married to or who you slept with, if you had a zillion-dollar mansion, tons of toys, and 24Kt gold faucets… I mean – if you took all the “stuff” away – would you be okay? At the core, would you still feel tall, strong, worthwhile and Loving/Loveable?
I subscribe to Neale Donald Walsch’s daily notes. I love them because, often, they are succinct and spot on with something I am feeling or thinking about. Here is a note I received recently….
On this day of your life, Nancy, I believe God wants you to know…
…that you are loved on this day for all the wonder that you bring to your world with the gift of being you.
Hard to believe, isn’t it, that you are that special in the eyes of God? Yet you are–and not because of what you have done, but because of who you are. You are God’s own creation, an expression of Divinity in human form. The fastest way to experience this is to be the vehicle through which others sees it in themselves. Each person is walking his or her path and doing his or her best. God knows this and that is why God loves you all.
Sometimes, we need little nudges to remind us that we are Loving, spiritual Beings and not just physical bodies climbing up Maslow’s pyramid. We need to remember that the mere chance of our existence is so miniscule as to be the near equivalent of a microscopic dust particle in the entirety of Universes we are, at present, aware of… and there will be many more unveiled in years to come, I am sure. Just to be conceived is a sheer miracle. When we pass, our Spirit leaves the body and travels on somewhere else. Who were we while we were here? What did we stand for? What moved our hearts that we made better? Who did we Love? What was beautiful to us?
Think about that. No matter what people may have said about you, in their non-understanding, it is imperative to hold your True, Spiritual self at the core of your heart. Leave the tags and labels behind – they are meant to discourage and sink you – hold God’s mirror to your heart and go experience why you are here. It may be to touch one life, millions of lives or to evolutionize your own.
And, for the record, please know that when I speak of God, I know there are many, many names used through all the belief systems – please fill in the blank with what you choose, if any!
