We need to take advantage of every possible opportunity that resonates with us--to show up--to not just think about it. The era of data collection is over. We have all read the same books, we have all listened to the same tapes. We all get the concept. Now, we have to turn it into action.
What is keeping you in bondage today?
We were each born with a seed of potential, a seed of possibility. That seed was planted within us, even before we opened our eyes to this expression of life. That seed has the potential to flourish and to grow, or if we don't find our joy, that planted seed of potential, can fade and show up as depression, discontent, anger, and more.
We often talk about "wanting to be spiritual," but being spiritual and taking care of our everyday affairs are exactly the same thing. There is no difference. With clarity we become ordinary––simply taking care of whatever comes before us. In this process, we develop trust that whatever shows up in our lives, we will meet it.
How have three people in Orange County made a difference in the lives of African children? They started an organization that paid $2000 for repairs on a school in Gisenyi, Rwanda, bought milk for newborns of mothers with HIV in Bujumbura, Burundi, begun a campaign for AIDS awareness in both cities as well as other small projects that benefit children. In the US, it does more than raise money…it tells stories of Africa. It also conveys how much people in Africa appreciate that they are not forgotten.
Though many of us are blessed with an unquenchable thirst for meaning and development, we rarely take the time to fully grasp the awesome responsibility of discovering our true purpose.

been wanting (or something
even better) is in hand?
