I am no Different - So do You!

Miracles of Life
Since my last post I was not inspired to do almost anything. I wasted lot's of time wondering why that would be. Again I fell into the trap of blaming the world for my misery and I got a fairly extensive list of things that didn't work out as I wanted and the respective-one guilty for that not to happen. I bet you know by now that I was not on the list.

Than, suddenly, I was driven out of bed. It's 12:23 a.m. local Rio de Janeiro time and I can only think of this.

Picture in your mind the most incredible thing designed by mankind that you have ever seen. Perhaps the Empire State Building, Pyramids, the Shuttle built by the technicians at NASA, the Japanese Bullet Train or even the intricate detailing in a painting you've seen.

What name comes to your mind when I say the words "creative genius?"

Who do you think of when I mention God-like compassion, caring and loving?

What author's name do you think of when I mention "poetry," "drama," "mystery," "fiction," and "comedy?"

What do you see when I say "strength," and "stamina?"

Finally "winner," "successful," or "role model?"

I'll bet you a Kids Meal at McDonald's you never saw yourself in any of those images. And yet...

Look at your hands. Are they not the same as the hands of the skillful artist, architect, mason, or technician?

If you were to x-ray your skull, would you not find the same brain matter that takes up the space between the ears of Einstein, Plato, and Disney?

Hold your hand to your chest. Can you feel the beat of a heart capable of paining for the homeless and starving? Have you not the same heart that beat in the chest of Jesus, Gandhi, Mohamed or the thousands of missionaries around the world?

Look at your fingers. Are they not like the fingers of Frost, Churchill, Stevens, Wilder and King that held tightly the pens that wrote the words that shaped the world?

Look at your feet. Show me the difference between yours and gold medalists of the Olympics or the rescuers who carried the people out of the rubble in a tragic earthquake.

Finally. Close your eyes as you stand in front of a mirror and picture in your mind that man or woman who you think of as a success, a winner and role model. Open your eyes and explain to me the difference between you and that person.

There is no difference...except in how you perceive yourself.

You have the mind, the hands, the feet, the fingers, the heart to be exactly what you want to be. The only thing that is stopping you is the person you see in the mirror.

You have all that it takes.
It's 1:18 A.M. I can sleep now. I can stop blaming others or circumstances for what is going on with me. I can get up early in the morning and start doing what I missed to do the past days and get my life back in track, ... and so can you.

I whish you a very good Easter Holiday and I really hope, you are not as dumb as I am and don't get trapped anymore in your own miserable thoughts instead of using all your potential to make the miracle happen in your life.

God bless you.
