To write a column about future events, about predictions and projections, you’ve got to have more than a little moxie, you’ve got to have (at least while you’re writing said column) some ego at your back.
After all, I present thoughts here to you not as The Gospel, but as a gospel, a set of teachings and beliefs that I am immodest enough to believe have some impact on how you go forth into the world. That my friends takes some Chutzpah.
And it is in the spirit of Chutzpah that I encourage each and every one of you to go forth and find your own gospels to proclaim from your own personal mountain tops. June is an 8-month universally and it calls each to own their own territory, to be self-possessed of their particular talents and skills.
Revealing yourself and your natural or earned gifts won’t be as hard as you think because this exercise does not have to devolve into a narrowly vainglorious pursuit. Rather, acknowledging your part, your responsibility in this world shows great depth of character. To a person we have a part to play in this life and the rest of the world is waiting for us to fulfill our contract.
Granted, not all of us will be great intellectual sages, neuroscientists or highly paid healers. For some, our function is hidden, buried away from view, perhaps taking place on the microscopically invisible cellular level. But that does not make it any less important.
When you are in step with what you are on the planet for, when you accept your place in the schema that we know as our universe, you make the world a better place, not just for yourself, but also for everyone else.
Think about this for a moment. It’s a fairly potent concept.
Find your calling. Answer it. ‘Nuff said.
