“Neither lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of a genius. Love, love, love that is the soul of genius.” ~ Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Because we are social creatures by nature, we look for who we are in the opinions of others, and sometimes these others don’t have the best view of us in mind. So when we let them define us, we fall short of recognizing the amazing being that we are. We put ourselves into the prison of being only what they can see. Many people see through a lens tinted with the color of the past, and they see you through that color, and they believe that all see with that clouded color. Their vision of you should be taken with a grain of salt, especially if the person has not silenced the mind and opened the heart enough to hear and embrace their own calling in life. Such a person is inadequate at helping others unfold from a soul level, for they still know very little about their own.
For that reason I say, in meditation and prayer, ask your soul instead, as it is your direct connection to all that is. It is your reliable link to that which we call God, Source, or The Supreme Being, the names are many. Within that beautiful soul of yours is infinity, and the manifestation of every dream your heart desires, so long as it is in alignment with the highest good for all. Your soul knows you better than anybody, and has a much richer library of experience, it will reveal to you your best qualities and the next step you can take to experience that dream, in this divine celebration we call life.
