What follows is my take on revealing one’s gift to the world.
We’ve all had experiences that demonstrate what being a New Style Leader feels and looks like and how it works in our life.
And it is through my own social and spiritual discovery of our inner and outer worlds, that brought me closer to the experience of the New Style Leader within. As we create more harmony in our soul, we are able to draw from the worlds around us and within us.
What I am referring to is an insight I had many years ago, about everything having an available symbiotic system that works in harmony with each person. And of course, there are other systems that are equally available but don’t necessarily aid in the same harmonic fashion.
Some are life generating while others are for the purpose of entropy.
The Living Attributes Typology is a complete system for the purpose of creating harmony between your inner and outer worlds, and through this balancing process (correct & transform) of the soul’s environment you ultimately reach your true potential.
The acknowledgment of the Light in all things – celebrates the power of creation. Even if a person can’t fully embrace this experience at first, faith in it eventually delivers their true purpose to them. I believe the experience of attributes such as Unity, Love, Beauty, Peace, Joy, and Kindness are key factors in demonstrating and celebrating our creativity.
Through the use of symbolism (art), colour, words, sound (song) and union, there is a shift that occurs in ones whole system (self/body), graciously aiding in the shift of the whole and larger system (Earth). These mediums are in a way like portals to Other Worlds, they are systems and the environments for particular light/energy forms. These Light forms (energy forces) are available to work with us, they are there to guide us into our full expansion, where we become one with the authentic power of being a New Style Leader.
It is said that the universal law of attraction guides us toward – What it is we want to give. This explains beautifully how our gifts are our quintessential drivers toward fulfilling our true purpose in life. As we recognize and work with our point in the heart, which is our homing device, we instinctively reach home base – giving us more clarity and ease than when we randomly look for what we think brings us, Bliss. Once we know what our inbuilt homing device feels like, and ultimately what it feels like to come HOME, we can then let go of the fear/anxiety of whether or not we are on purpose in our life. This surrendering of our fixed outcomes is actually our ticket HOME and it’s in honoring our gifts to the world (true talents) that we find the correct vehicle that can actually take us there.
We often take our gift or gifts for granted because they seem to come easily to us and therefore think they are not of any great value. The Creator gave our gifts to us freely; it is up to us to use these gifts wisely and with great reverence. Our gift is the most valuable possession we will ever own in this lifetime, purely because of where it came from, Source. Let’s look a little closer at the word “gift”.
A gift is usually a symbolic gesture of gratitude or marks a celebration of some sort. If we view our gifts as something of a celebration, and we usually like to celebrate with others, so let’s start celebrating our ability to share our gifts with the world.
Everything about our journey on Earth is about giving; the ability to give is the most joyous thing we can do. Keeping everything to our self for the purpose of only receiving is counterproductive. It eventually creates a vacuum and we become either energetically congested to the point of wanting to explode or we implode energetically not knowing how to deal with life outside our self; lost in a sea of “where am I, who am I and why am I?”
Understanding and accepting the nature of our true gifts brings us home again, there is nothing to become anymore because the surrender was really only surrendering to the true nature of who we are. The Shadow Self’s real fear is; The Fear Of Being Fully Seen And Heard. Either way, the fear will kill our light and kill the life we were meant to live (by the way ‘live’ spelled backward is ‘evil’). So the evil of not sharing our gift is actually not fully living our lives.
Image if these people didn’t share their gifts –
Rudolf Steiner, Joseph Campbell, Carl Jung, James Dean, Walt Disney, Albert Einstein, Martin Luther King Jr, Nelson Mandela, Michael Jackson, Edith Piaf, Shirley Temple, John Keats, Coco Chanel, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerburg, Meryl Streep, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Richard Branson, Anita Rhodic, Greta Garbo, Charlie Chaplin, Louise Hay, Buck Minster Fuller, Carl Sagan, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Stevie Wonder, George Washington, Sri Krishna, Emperor Constantine, Martin Luther, Socrates, Charles de Gaulle, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Joan of Arc, Sir Isaac Newton , Queen Victoria , Benjamin Franklin, Confucius, Alexander the Great, Galileo Galilee, Mahatma Gandhi, Aristotle, Catherine the Great, Mozart, Princess Diana , Paul Newman, Oscar Wilde , Napoleon Bonaparte, Beethoven, Florence Nightingale, Leonardo da Vinci Louis Pasteur, Leo Tolstoy, Mother Teresa, Pablo Picasso, Mohammed Ali, John F. Kennedy, Queen Elizabeth 1, Marie Curie, Eva Peron, Elvis Presley, Rosa Parks, Schubert, Desmond Tutu, Dalai Lama, Barack Obama, Jamie Oliver, J.K.Rowling, Jesus, Ernest Hemingway, John Lennon, Henry Ford, J.R.R.Tolkien, Marilyn Monroe, Oprah Winfrey, Jesse Owens, Bill Gates, Maya Angelou.
All these talented people have shared their gifts with the world and created a processional effect for many others. And of course, there are thousands of other individuals who have shared their gifts without the recognition. Interesting though, how all the people mentioned didn’t become less of themselves by sharing their gifts; in fact, they actually increased their presence because of it.
So if we view these wonderful role models and iconic figures as an example of what is possible, we see that if they hadn’t shared their gifts with the world, we wouldn’t be even having this conversation. Actually, I wouldn’t be able to write this article on my computer and send it out to the world. Their personal drive to do their work and share their gifts has served in evolving our planet in many ways. It doesn’t matter what arena we choose to play in, there is a divine reason why we have the gift that we do and from a big picture view, it is all-perfect.
The key factor here is – “Where do we like to be the most?”
This is how our inner homing device comes in to play; it’s our point in the heart that directs us like a compass to where we need to be. Each vocation is as important as the next.
The main areas of influence in the world are – Science, Arts, Industry, Education, Government and Wellbeing, all areas of creative expression aid in the evolution of the whole. When we are able to view life from a more conscious and contributing standpoint, our gifts begin to increase in value. We begin to see where we could be of value to the whole. We drop the need for it to be about money or personal gain and realize that our unique gifts are about giving to the world in the best way we can.
We are often hell-bent on collecting and holding on to what we think is rightfully ours – then it somehow slips away from us again. Like sand in an hourglass, we keep turning it up again hoping it will stay full this time. We haven’t learned the dance of giving a little here, give a little there and only take what you know you can give back.
Let’s remember we have and have always had something of amazing value to offer the world… our Gift.
Together we can celebrate the Gift that we were born to be and share… There is no beginning and there is no end, only the never-ending story – US.
What is your gift to the humanity that will light up the world?
