Block everyone out and everything out for this moment. I ask you each individually the questions:
What is your Dream?
What is that ONE thing that you have a burning passion inside your soul to do or be?
Some of you really don’t have a clue because some things have happened to you along the way to cause you to forget. But today is THE TIME to REMEMBER.
The way to discover that is to take your mind and heart back to the beginning, back to when you were a child as far back as you can remember. When you were happy and before anything “bad” happened to you. Close your eyes take some slow deep and steady breaths in and out through your nose and remember.
Yes, there were many things you wanted to do; but what was the ONE thing that you knew you absolutely wanted to be or do? When you remember that, you have just remembered the most important thing in your life – WHO you really are.
From the beginning you were given the seed of life in your heart and the desire, will and inclination toward a single undivided path or course. This point of inclination is your true source of fulfillment, happiness, and contentment. It is your real aim and purpose for life. Once you discover or REMEMBER your original assignment you will find the greatest reward, and your deepest and most poignant prayers will be answered when you follow the course of that particular path and live by the principles thereof. To do so, you will finally have found the depth of what you have been looking for and what remains is only to walk therein that light.
The first lesson in life one must learn is who they are and in the knowledge of that reality to have courage to walk in that truth believing whole heartedly and staying true to who you are. You must be able to REMEMBER and behold in your imagination that dream and recognize the force and power of it to take your seat among the masters of that particular abode. There is a saying that the “cream always rises to the top.” Some of you say it and do not truly understand what it means. The cream is the most excellent element or part. Going a little deeper, the cream is the anointed. Being anointed is about consecration and to consecrate is to be devoted.
Many of you believe that it is someone outside of yourself that first anoints you. However the reality is before any support can come, you must first devote yourself to the real cause and remain true to the very principle of that ONE cause – Who you really are.
Consequently what is being said here is follow your dreams, let no one take it away from you, and be true to who you are. Spin the ball of your world or lean your being toward your life assignment and be undivided in your devotion to it. In order to truly become successful and achieve your dream, you must be completely devoted to the mastery of that particular trade. It is not to your advantage to be a “jack of all trades and a master of none.” For your mastery of your purpose in life is where your true success lies. Your devotion to your dream will not only help you to achieve it but it will also make you the “cream of the crop.” And again, the cream always rises to the top. No doubt about it.
Those who are truly successful, happy, fulfilled and content in life are the ones who have taken the stand to be steadfast to follow their dreams and no matter what the terrain as they travel to reach their destination staying the course not giving way to false promises, overtures of grandeur, or seemingly more attractive opportunities. REMEMBER who you are and stay true to WHO YOU ARE.
There have been people who have implanted doubt in your mind that has caused you to struggle in a way never imaginable. And through this grafting process, corruption or otherwise shift in your real purpose or occupation, you should have been able to develop a keener sense of sight and strength to help you in your authentic reality should you be courageous enough to stand on that truth no matter who says what about it and no matter what friends you lose in the process. In truth you are not really losing friends but clearing the way to unite with your real friends and family and finally come home like the prodigal son who finally returns after spending countless years wasting the very gift and inheritance he was given.
Once you REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE, you will never again be fooled or no one will be able to place doubt in your mind or offer you seemingly better opportunities that causes you to change your course or direction. Nowadays or rather during the day(light) of your understanding, no “stranger” will be able to deceive or trick you into doing other than what you were truly born to do. And no matter the creative process or “angle” you take as you spin that ball, the fact is the ball is still spinning in the purposed path, and as it is spinning is beholding and believing in the dream and never letting hold of that powerful force to help you attain your true happiness.
So the story about the TRADER who made an interpretation that they receive G O L D for their labor – more than they were earning in their own country, is the story about you allowing others to deceive you into giving up the ONE thing that you are passionate about and to trade that path for one that you thought would or could be more profitable than your own true passion; not realizing that profitability is not simply a matter of money but about increase. And your gift or authentic dream is your ticket to increase.
And the fundamental principle here is this: “Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full–pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.” The devotion to your dream, your purpose will allow you the greatest of rewards on all levels when you stay the course. Through your gift is your overflow and make no mistake about it your gift is wrapped up in your original dream before doubt entered the picture or before that grafting took place.
Because of doubt you became other than who you really are to become someone else in order to “earn a living,” make money, or earn favor because of your own faulty understanding that you must do that in order to be happy, successful, fulfilled and contented. However, the greatest title to have is your own real name, meaning the real you and your real name encompasses the essential quality of who you are – YOUR DREAM IS YOUR TRUTH IS YOUR FORTUNE IS YOU. Your vision is your creative energy or the angle you spin on your Dream. While your vision may take shape over time, and come alive in a variety of ways as your sight becomes clearer, your dream is what it is and at the end of the day usually remains the same. That is what you must REMEMBER. So take hold of your dream and visualize a plan to set in motion in your pursuit of happiness – Otherwise in your pursuit of YOUR DREAM.
So when you REMEMBER you realize that after spending years of being other than yourself, you come to understand that no matter what you amass in terms of material wealth, friends, or favor, deep down there still exists a void because the very thing you gave up was the ONE gift that was given to you to provide you with what you wanted all along. And when you REMEMBER it will take courage to NOW walk in that light and according to that path.
No one can answer that question for you. It will take you to REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE, and then once you start being who you authentically are and living that dream, you will find the success you have been ultimately looking for, and learn to walk in the truth of that light for all to SEE.
When you REMEMBER, WHO YOU ARE, you learn to discern between the opportunities that are ones for you to take and those you leave behind because they will take you away from your true purpose. However part of the discernment process deals with intentions. Thus, your intentions must be aligned with the real you and your authentic purpose. If what you do is for “the money” and is not aligned with your dream, there will inevitably be that void.
Many people can offer you many things, but is what they are offering worth you sacrificing the whole person of your being and the very passion that makes your heart beat? This is only something you can answer.
So, the message to you is to:
REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE and BE WHO YOU ARE in truth.
