When you go to bed at night, or just awaken in the morning, when all is yet still in your environment, I know you sometimes sense God’s intention for your life. You see through the illusions common to the human experience. The thin veil of unseeing is rent assunder and you see God’s vision for your life. It is then that you no longer cling to the conspiracy of human definitions that seek to convince you to give up, to believe there is not enough good to go around. You rise above all this and realize that you are surrounded by spiritual ideas. There comes a breakthrough, a recognition of the blueprint of excellence which is the Real Self. Then the prophets of gloom and doom take up no space in your mental household. You become a glorious agent of transformation in your own life and in the lives of others.
Never giving up on yourself is what it takes to be your own hero.
