Wherever you’ve been, and whatever you’ve done so far, your entire life was building up to this moment. Now is the time to burst forth into your greatness, a greatness you could never have achieved without going through exactly the things you’ve gone through. Everything you’ve experienced was grist for the mill by which you have become who you are. As low as you might have descended, in God there are no limits to how high you can go now. It is not too late. You are not too damaged. In fact, you are better than you know. – from A YEAR OF MIRACLES – Daily Devotions and Reflections by Marianne Williamson
We are all “better than we know…” It’s why we need other people in our lives to shine a light on our own souls to reveal the treasures within.
Understand you can’t see what you don’t know and so the fact that you can see goodness and worthiness in someone else means that you are good and worthy too!
I believe that we are all on our hero’s journey. Like Joseph Campbell says…
at the darkest point,
where there is no path.
Where there is a way or path,
it is someone else’s path.
You are not on your own path.
If you follow someone else’s way,
you are not going to realize
― Joseph Campbell, The Hero’s Journey: Joseph Campbell on His Life & Work
Your path is unique to you and designed for you to grow along it and figure out the way.
So much time and energy is wasted contemplating the path of others and condemning our own: too hard, too frustrating, too circuitous, too calamitous…
THIS is YOUR LIFE…merely assisting you to become WHO YOU ARE. Be willing to shine a light on those things you need to look at, on those things you’d rather not see. Marianne says…
Chaos often fosters the greatest creativity. Breakdowns often precede the greatest breakthroughs. And when the pain is greatest is often when we’re on the brink of the greatest realization
Be encouraged. You are better than you know!
