Reflection and Definition
“How dull it is to have people defining you.” – Octavia E. Butler
After soaring over the lake welcoming the day, the eagle landed on a rock.
Gazing around at rest, he looks down at the water, frozen in rapt attention.
Seeing his reflection looking back, he stares.
In that moment of pause, he sees himself, defines himself.
Spend time daily apart from opinion, memory and imposed narratives that have defined you.
Suspend, open, look with new eyes.
Gaze at the reflection looking back at you.
See and take in your True Self, God’s definition not others or your own.
The self that is still unfolding and unfurling that needs no permission or approval.
If you are alive, you are still in the game, on the field, expected to participate, to contribute.
Search and find the divinity within and let it change you.
Transcending to see the beautiful, one-of-a-kind soul reflecting back at you.
Worthy. Unique. Here on and for a purpose.
Move into it with confidence and grace.
“The True Self is not our creation, but God’s. It is the self we are in our depths. It is our capacity for divinity and transcendence.” – Sue Monk Kidd
