Expect Great Things

Quote of the Day – March 26 2013

 

“Think, dream and expect great things. For would you rather be correct in your perception? Or would you rather be exceptional in your life?”
― Christopher Babson

 

We are all exceptional. Some of us are lucky enough to realize our exceptionality. We learn with time and effort to shine forth our identities, take on our aspects and shout out who we are without fear or worry of who may hear or who may care. We take responsibility for what we do and what we say even if it gets misquoted and never take on the role of victim or victimizer no matter who tries to cast us in this role. The most important quality I find that exceptional people share is helping others to realize their own exceptionality. Can you imagine a universe of self-aware exceptional people?
Blessings, G

““I will follow my instincts, and be myself for good or ill.”

Internal Dialogue

 
“Tonight I add another blue sky piece to fit into the puzzle. ”
“What puzzle?”
“The puzzle of my understanding”
“Understanding of what?”
“Y’know life. the universe. everything”
“Ah that puzzle. OK what is it”
“The will to exceptionality
When each one of us (each being) is exceptional and has a purpose why do so many of us need to feel that we are ‘more special’ than anyone else?”
This goes beyond the personal to me (tho you wouldn’t believe how many people i have met who felt that they personally above all others were touched by God over the years)
it goes to the tribal, the ‘chosen’ people, Jehovah’s witnesses etc
all exceptional and all exclusive…
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about this meme of late.
i get that we all need to feel recognized, valued like we have something unique to offer but why so often does that mean ‘I am special but all of you are not?’ It seems to be a symptom so i want to look at what the healthy model would be
it seems to look a lot like “we each have gifts unique to us that we share with each other’
This works on almost every level, individual, group, tribal, cultural, species, universal and yet why do so many people (and tribes) seem to feel that their gifts are diminished if they acknowledge those of others.
Aside from practicing it ourselves, how do we get to that healthy point?”
“I dunno, man”

 

To be continued (or should I say fit into place)….
Blessings, G
