I am reminded of a grain of sand that in and of itself doesn't stand-out or can even be seen (well) let alone desired but when put with its like kind becomes a sand-bar or a beachhead with a distinct purpose both below and above the surface. Collectively these grains serve a purpose and individually cause that purpose to a result. How much more then does a human being make its mark?
We don't rely on the wind or nature to shovel us around but instead are self-propelled to come and go at random and by deliberation. Amazing alone or in a group a human being is both a pleasure while being different as no two are alike. This is a mystery. Amazing is that we have so much in common linking us but remain unique at the same time
HERE'S HOW YOU KNOW YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE
In the opening paragraph the grain of sand has no awareness of itself yet in plays and performs a role in the life realm. How to know who you are and what you are doing here is best examined using the Richie Reverse rule. Don't leave your home or show-up anywhere & the world goes on without you just fine. Now, leave & go anywhere and you have now impacted a change from that action. To go or not is a force at work
SPECIFIC or GENERAL CAUSE and EFFECT
Cause and effect is part of the driving force of the known and the unknown from the Universe to the unseen realms. Humans play a part just by existing or being here like it or not. We can turn up our visit or turn it down but nothing changes the fact that you are here and included in whatever does or does not take place
One of the most satisfying experiences if not the most satisfying is to discover the part we play or do not play in our own lives and of course in the lives of others. We often forget that being kind rewards the self and when practiced on another does the same. What if that kindness spread? You had a part in it all!
REVERSE THIS (richie reverse)
Imagine we could have played or taken part and we did not. The outcome is different than if we did partake. Your act of kindness would not have gone to work because you were not there to launch it. I used "kindness" to make my example but it extends to every subject really. Here is an unpleasant thought.......
ACTS of UN-KINDNESS
If we take an involvement and misuse our skills bank (directly or indirectly) to commit an unkind act look at how the power we possess to make a difference drives that unkind act! So we not only make a difference by commission or omission but have power to launch this as well. This is no accidental gifting either
MADE IN THE IMAGE OF SOMETHING GREAT
At some point in ones life they come to realize that there is a greater power at work beyond comprehension. We behold countless mysteries and discoveries that lead us to this obvious conclusion that becomes fact. This power while invisible makes itself visible through us and around us making it hard to deny or dismiss
WHAT'S GOING ON THEN?
We have been invited to attend and be part of these mysteries via adventures and can turn it up or down as we desire using our seeking, asking and questioning abilities. When we do it is so rewarding. Why? When we trigger our capabilities which are abundant they go to work and we marvel at what takes place
GUESTS IN THE HOUSE
Life can be compared to being invited to a grand ball equipped with everything all five star and abundant with no lack of what is desired or necessary with ample time to enjoy it all. One thing though: At some point everyone without exception will want to thank their HOST for having them. This is only natural to do
HOW TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
Discover the magnificent gift of life! Then, to want to appreciate the ONE who gifted us while we are using & discovering the dynamics as they unfold second to second. A natural humility develops and a gratitude is formed making the recipient take on a character similar to the one who gifted them to begin with. We now know a type of purpose or meaning is about and we are part of it. NO, this is no accident but quite intended
TAKE WHAT HAS BEEN GIVEN
And give it back! How? Use it and as soon as you start spending what you have been given you will discover the giver replenishing what was spent making you never to be without the ability to give and of course to enjoy the benefits of doing so. It is called service, love & goodwill amongst other virtuous names
I maintain that one should care for themselves first and when able begin the process to include others. When you do, that difference I mentioned becomes apparent and feeds our souls to satisfaction and completion. This completion is called purpose. Be of purpose!
