One of the greatest struggles we face on our spiritual journey is trying to become someone we aren't. We desperately attempt anything to fit our image into a mold that simply doesn't accommodate our talents, visions, gifts, ambitions and uniqueness.
Instead of admiring the gifts our fellow brothers and sisters bring forth we instead allow envy and jealousy among a handful of emotions to seep into the core of our essence, hence blocking our view with a tar like substance.
We feel that if we do not posses a particular talent or gift we aren't good enough or are simply falling behind on our spiral development. Nothing can be farther from reality. It is my belief that we come into each incarnation with the same exact set of gifts as one another.
Each lifetime provides us with the opportunity to harness and strengthen certain gifts, all depending on our unique chosen path. Not two paths are ever the same, not two paths requiring the same set of tools to pave. Yet we want to pave our path with borrowed tools when our own tools are locked up in a shed while the key in our pocket.
Each subsequent incarnation we experience a flurry of vividly awakened gifts while other gifts seem to be in their infancy. There is a reason for this, we’ve had many incarnations requiring a specific set of gifts. These gifts strengthened by having chosen to be a healer, artist, lecturer, martyr and so much more during each incarnation. For that reason certain gifts are further developed than others, our spiritual development in not stalled it is rather progressing.
It’s like walking into a modern day buffet, all of these appetizing entrees there for the taking but we know our stomach can only process so much in a short period of time. We know the buffet will always be there for us to return and sample the other entrees and desert.
Focusing on our strengths is what makes us unique on our chosen path. Allow the gifts yet to develop time, space and patience to do so. Harness, practice and apply your powerful strengths towards your chosen spiritual path and service to others not towards the negatively fueled competition with your brothers and sisters. You will find peace and uncover a once thought of hidden side of you that is as powerful as power itself.
