Some of us are born better. We have more light and more fight.
We must accept this gift with gratitude and humility. We must also realize that this privilege carries a terrible responsibility. We must leave the comforts of convention, often including our families of origin and their limited ways, to develop, embody and share our gift.
But what do I mean by better?
I mean more conscious. This increased capacity for self-awareness, truth awareness, is a gift from nature and evolution. Additional gifts are our motivation to embody and share this gift and our willingness to be in an environment that supports and can use our unusual ability.
Talent is not what I’m talking about. Many are extremely gifted in the arts or science or business or politics. Some are brilliant entrepreneurs and earn huge sums. Yet in terms of consciousness and self-knowing, truth-knowing, they are not gifted at all.
If you are born better, don’t be shy. Instead thank life for this gift and use it in this troubled world to change it for the better. Remember, change starts from the imagination of an inspired few.
