Play to your strengths! That’s what my Heart told me this morning.
This isn’t anything new, is it? However, it’s always new when my Heart speaks directly to me, my mind and soul. Why did I need to hear that?
Earlier in the day, I had asked Heart for encouragement. I wrote this morning of the quote I saw of Rosa Parks: “I have learned over the years that when our mind is made up, it diminishes fear.” That was encouraging because I did a little wishy-washy thinking when I was doing some research about books in my genre, both my little nonfiction volume and my novel.
The encouragement was in myself. Make up your mind. It’s a done deal. I in no way am doing anything close to the scope of Rosa Parks’ work, but the mark of great work like she did in her bus stance and in her activism and service after that is it provides a multiplicity of lessons.
I considered how she may have looked at other activists and she could have reasoned as to the impact she should would have at great personal sacrifice, but her mind was made up. I love her spirit, and it encouraged me after a tough week. I would be publishing no matter what, but I need to do it from a stance of joy, happiness, and confidence.
Part of the need arises because it seems like everything I do takes longer than anyone else. Guess what one of my strengths is: patience. Another one? A passion for discovery, and I am learning throughout this journey, exploring and discovering. I’m playing to my strengths as I continue in my Purpose. I just need a little “Way to go, Mike” ever so often. My faithful Heart, the Spirit of all things, and this Universe of energy confirmed it to me this morning, and that is encouraging.
All things do work together for good (Romans 8:28), and the Universe does, indeed, conspire on my behalf (Coelho, The Alchemist).
I will leave this for tonight, simply because it’s a great example of the way we interact with eternal Spirit and the energies of life through Heart. Be assured that Ego would never have produced this. As I’ve said many times, folks who have not awakened to Heart or even rejected it for now aren’t wrong or evil, no more so than those who have awakened. However, it’s all about experiencing happiness, significance, fulfillment, and enjoying life in love and light.
Blessings in that!
