As I mentioned in last week’s newsletter, I lost a teacher and friend of mine, Allan (Sethius) Clark, recently. It’s in these difficult days sometimes, when the light can actually be the brightest, right?
It’s like the night sky….without the darkness, there can be no stars shining brightly for all to see. It can be times like these where we find our moments of clarity, our “a-ha” moments. We realize that we are all on borrowed time and we need to act now to do what we were put here to do. As Allan always said, “What makes you think you have the time?”
Some of you may have known for years what you wanted to do, what you were called to do, but you let fear or uncertainty hold you back. Maybe you’re letting self-doubt hold you back. But, what makes you think you have all the time in the world? Take action now. Action is the only way we move forward.
Do you feel like you’ve tried everything, done everything, and you still haven’t been able to create what you want to create? Do you feel stuck at that level of “personality” while there’s a whole river of creativity, connection, love, and expression flowing from somewhere deep inside you? What is that?
That is the unique, essential spark that lives within you and is deeply, profoundly, and intimately connected with the infiniteness of the universe – with God, with love, with the divine, with pure light. It always and ever will be. That is the soul. It is the little sparkle of light that comes to you and you put out into the world.
And the purpose of your soul is the experience – and the expression – of life itself. It’s about experiencing ALL of itself; to experience as much of the truth of light and love and infiniteness and creativity as you can.
As we go out and do our work on the level of personality, we each have a unique expression. Some of us are here to be singers. Some of us are here to be poets. Some of us are here to volunteer and be of service to our communities. Some of us are here to work with children, with entrepreneurs, or with couples. Some of us are meant to work in government, with the public, or in large corporate organizations. There are a gazillion different ways you can express your unique “spark.”
Soul expresses differently through different human beings as we play out our unique parts in the universe, but the essence of what the soul is here to do is to simply experience itself, expressing in its fullest. Add up the 31 Baskin Robbins flavors plus all the Ben & Jerry’s flavors plus all the Häagen-Dazs – it’s all ice cream, but it’s expressed differently as mint chocolate chip or fudge ripple or peanut butter brownie or raspberry – whatever your unique flavor is.
Whatever you experience, and have experienced, and will experience, is here to serve you. When you can trust that your soul knew what it was doing when it chose you and chose these experiences to shape you into who it needed you to be to let the maximum amount of light and love pour through, you can begin to extract the gem, the beauty, the gifts of the challenges.
So whatever it is that you were meant to do…be it a coach, a speaker, or a writer. Take action toward your dreams now! What are you waiting for? There is never a better time than now!
