At your core you are a rock. A being that sits in a river of life forever. How does one give more to a being that cannot die, that is indestructible, that rarely changes? What can you do with a being that has all that it needs? Give it the complete opposite. Show it life in a constant motion of change, show it the sanctity of life by making your existence mortal. Allow your existence to experience every flavor of possibility from the most succulent to the horribly bitter, every possible choice, every possible path, experience in every way, always changing. It is a gift of splendor for a being that only knows its perfect state and whether you know it or not you are slowly evolving into something greater than yourself with so many experiences.
There is no way for you to comprehend forever. But imagine this, each life you have is one minute, each minute that passes another life, each hour 60 lives, each day 1440 lives, 525,949 lives in a year, and you still barely scratched the surface. For those who mourn their loved ones, remember that year, because that is the endless possible times you have to spend with your loved ones, again and again.
Your soul also carries the gifts your creator gave to you. That gift that makes you uniquely different. For me its my ability to connect with the Spiritual realm, to communicate with the heavens. In other lifetimes it’s also been my leadership skills. Not all of them are career based, perhaps its your love of children, or animals. It is the fire of your passion, that part of you that burns inside waiting to come out. To deny it will make you feel so empty inside. To fulfill it is to make your life complete. It’s not without its struggles, my gift during the Oracle of Delphi adorned me with luxury and material wealth beyond anything I should have received, but that same gift in the 19th century, living as a farmer in Tennessee, put me in the insane asylum. History views our gifts differently over the centuries. Whatever the gift, it is your direct connection to your creator, that special relationship you have with your creator, one that allows you to leave your mark here, making the world just a little bit better in his name.
Finally is the understanding of balance. One end of your existence is immortal, the other mortal, one hardly ever changes, while the other changes every second. One has such stable structure while the other could end in a flash. It is our creator allowing us to experience every possibility life has to offer, but always remember at your core you are a rock.
