We are made of earth and we return to earth, and, in between, we get to do some amazing things: “fearfully and wonderfully made” reflects one voice, a “mystery wrapped in a question,” another.
There has never been such a time as this, for a person’s individuality, value, and genius to be expressed and received. Even difficult times do not appear to exclude a person, rather, making their contribution stronger, as they help others in similar situations.
We may or may not get paid for this, but it is clear, every day offers the opportunity to do what we love for free – no permission required, we can research, practise, prototype, and create. What daily, free expression of what we love does – whether executing some action, influencing others, building relationships, or, coming up with new ideas – is hone it into something powerful.
There’s a lot of information in the the world these days, and it’s certain people know a lot of things, but it’s the putting of all of this together in some meaningful, alchemistic way which is the real magic. Every day we get to practise amazing skills.
Who knows? One day someone may want to pay us for our skills. One thing for sure is we don’t have to wait, wasting the gift each day provides to do the things we love to do for free.
When you know what it is you do and what you have have to do it with, you can take it further and further – every day.
You don’t have to call it free; you can say, it’s gifted.
And one more thought: find others to join with.
