Many Parts….Connected!

All One TreeThe greatest illusion in this world is the illusion of separation; that we are independent of one another; that we do not share in the events of life. Nothing can be further from the truth. Everything that happens, even if it is on the other side of the earth, will eventually makes it impact on each of us. This explanation is revealed to us in  1 Corinthians 12:4-11, “Brothers and sisters: There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; there are different forms of service but the same Lord; there are different workings but the same God who produces all of them in everyone. To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit is given for some benefit. To one is given through the Spirit the expression of wisdom; to another, the expression of knowledge according to the same Spirit; to another, faith by the same Spirit; to another, gifts of healing by the one Spirit; to another, mighty deeds; to another, prophecy; to another, discernment of spirits; to another, varieties of tongues; to another, interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit produces all of these, distributing them individually to each person as he wishes.”

Each of us was created with special, unique gifts and even more importantly, a unique purpose. Our participation in and our contribution to the balance of life is vital. For each of us that separates ourself from the whole of humanity; not only do we create a void in the world but we will forge through our lives always feeling an emptiness; a vacancy that many of us spend our entire lives trying to fill. Unfortunately some of the substitutions we turn to in an attempt to fill this void become destructive in our lives. Many turn to alcohol, drugs, food, sex, the internet; the list goes on! These forms of addictions not only take us out of the game of life, but they do affect everyone, everywhere, because as we have determined we are all connected.

we-are-all-connectedIt is when we begin to realize and embrace the fact that we were created for a purpose that only we can fulfill that we can begin to grow and become the full potential God created us for. The value you can bring to the world through these gifts are irreplaceable and cannot not be provided by anyone else but you!

We are all created with an internal desire to be a part of something bigger than ourselves; and thanks to our Heavenly Father we are! We are all connected through His One Spirit; each with a distinct purpose and that being to bring peace, joy and love to the whole and by default to ourselves! Me must never forget that we are one. All that we do, or don’t do; all that we say, or don’t say; all that we become, or don’t become, MATTERS! You matter, I matter, each person on this earth with a heartbeat matters and when I begin to care as much about you as I care about my own heart, mind and spirit, well my friends great things are destined to be! You count! You matter. We need you! NOW is our time!

    Yes, God gave us unique gifts & sometimes we don’t recognize what we have until we need to rely on our God given talent.
