Again, I sit and come into a deeper awareness of self. What can be new? The awareness of something I have always had/have, something that the old me would be criticized for on many occasions. Something I never embraced and did not view it as a gift? How can it be, that week after week, day after day, I see it, but never really valued it….IT, IT! Rare, me being rare. The value of my rarity. To comprehend, practice and embrace my rarity is so, oh so, refreshing and new!! I am not speaking of just the rarity in my mannerism, my physical self or my emotional self, but yet the whole package. The rarity within the rarity. We all seek the validation at some point, we all want, want, want….security, health, wealth and on and on. We are all the same when it comes to those matters…. So what is my rarity? What sets me apart from the rest of humanity in this place, on this planet? What is so rare, that I have discovered and now embrace, and use and come to know? How I tell a story, how I speak in public, how I laugh when I am free, how my way of expressing myself captivates my audience.? My hair, which flows freely and is so thick, that is captures the curiosity of a 4 year old? Is it my whole essence, how I create a sense of joy as I get ready to share anything and everything? Oh, if only we had a mini retreat, so all who take the time to read this, could really see the rare me…the real me. Not talking about the story behind me or my flaws, but the me now…the rare me that came out of all I have experienced, the good, bad and the ugly and managed to still keep my rarity. The rare me that can see the past as the best teacher, see the future as a fun playground, with much to explore, and see the now as the best my time to practice it all. The rare me that can love in such a way that words cannot begin to describe. That rarity in me that is able to produce such energy, just with my sincere words, my loving gestures, my kind heart and my ability to transmit to others joy and laughter and love for self. How do I do that? That will be for another time….but now I am just in a happy place, realizing that the power I possess within, that kept being put down and stepped on, is actually the best part of me…the rarity in me is what makes me so me…. amazing….the way I approach those I cross paths with, so subtle yet so profound….why is all this rare? If everyone has kindness and many loving attributes, why am I so rare? In part as I discover in the 4th scroll of The Greatest Salesman in the World, there is none that can duplicate the way I do what I do….no one can duplicate the feeling I produce in someone, as they get to know me….no one can speak as I do, with the conviction of love in my heart and the way my smile creates a comfortable place for those around me….my giving, my caring and compassionate heart overflows with an abundance of depth. My ability to do all that I do, give all that I give, feel all that I feel and empower others with it, is my rarity. According to the system of the old blueprint, I would have had a hard heart, and light barely lit, but that is my rarity….I am unique, I am me in a very special and rare way…..almost can be called magical….
loving and learning and caring and giving….simply magic 🙂
