Reveal What’s Hidden

This past week I was awestruck by the hidden talent of someone close to me. Hilarious by nature, the humor equally as present in written word, it was something I was unaware of previously. I read somewhere once that a woman didn’t know what she was thinking until she began to write, and I can absolutely attest to that. Often I take photo, or think of a topic and run with it; thoughts pouring out onto the keys, messages that I would not have been able to articulate in the same way had it been through a verbal discussion. Reading his story, fighting through the tears of laughter, it makes me wonder how much talent is lying beneath the surface in those who surround us; how much talent is left untapped in the students in school, yearning to learn and be understood. What measures must we take as friends, partners, teachers and leaders to create a channel to allow the flow of creative energy, talent and raw emotions to breathe life into their existence. What we see on the surface is just the tip of greatness. I’ve never realized that so much as I do now. With each passing week, I experience something new with my special someone, something unexpected and fresh. Imagine what we could experience with those around us, with nature, with the world, if offered our unending love to more than our closest few; if we aspired to spread greatness and do good by others as He does for us. Praying for change is a start, praying for greatness, success, love and peace is important, but a huge piece of creating change is action, and that means not just having the thought for change, but putting your ideas into motion.

From Far Away

From far away galaxies, to the fibers of your own being, matter exists. Energy is in everything, every piece of matter in existence. Have you ever noticed your intuition alerting you when someone just doesn’t seem right? Or that gut feeling when you know you shouldn’t walk a certain way? Does your heart expand with love and gratitude the second you walk in the door after work and you see your dog going wild when they see you? We have an unsurmountable ability to notice and feel the energy that others give off, as long as we are open and accepting. Many times, people write off things as coincidence, or a weird feeling and think nothing more; however, I’ve come to learn that nothing is by coincidence. There is synchronicity in life, and it is ever apparent. The beauty of this blooms once you acknowledge it. It is at that point that it feels as if the stars have aligned, and pieces begin filling in together. Be aware of the bountiful gifts of the earth, open your heart and mind to the rhythm of life, and allow the vibrations of your own energy to increase and expand to the loving earth and its inhabitants.

You are made of up of matter. Everyone and everything is made up of matter.

We all matter.

Breaking through the chains of conformity.

Music is freedom. No matter what the constraints, you can find your voice and express yourself creatively through music. I love it. I love the energy it brings, its ability to inspire not only yourself, but anyone who has the opportunity to listen. One type does not fit all, and what may touch the soul of one individual, one demographic, or provide someone with peace at one moment in time, may cause a significantly different emotional response for the next person or group. That’s the beauty of life, of choice, of individuality. Expression is our God given right. It’s not meant to fit a mold, nor is it finite. It’s limitless and ever-changing.

It’s interesting to see the love and acceptance that so many show for one another, and also the undeniable misunderstanding, or lack of desire to understand and relate, that still remains. If only everyone could learn to close their eyes, open their heart and let their soul experience the truth of existence, the love that every living being is meant to experience and radiate without the constraints of one’s ego.

What is of any significance, is what you feel with your soul. The beauty that surrounds us in nature can be enjoyed by all who choose to see it, just as the beauty that surrounds us in diversity can be enjoyed the same.
