Have you asked yourself the primary question about your life: “WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH WHAT YOU´VE BEEN GIVEN?” What if you ask this question yourself now and keep repeating it during the day, throughout the weekend or next few days, and stay open for the answers that you get.
“What do you have that you have been given? Talent, background, education, freedom, networks, opportunities, wealth, ideas, creativity…”
Whatever the answers you get, keep in mind that “…God smiles when YOU BE YOU“.
These are quotes from the powerful talk by pastor Rick Warren who advises world leaders at United Nations, the World Economic Forum and the Council of Foreign Relations. His book “The Purpose Driven Life” has sold over 30 million copies.
In manywaystogo we share ideas that are inspiring for us. We do not select them because they represent this or that religion, philosophy or belief. We want to be open to true wisdom, no matter via which channel it comes to us. If you too can stay open, then you will be collecting the pearls from this talk and it will not matter if you are a christian or not. What matters is if you want to live in a better world where you are you.
Oh, by the way, this questions has kept us intensively busy for the last couple of weeks. In the beginning it felt awkward to repeat it to ourselves again and again. For some time we were getting the answers that we already knew. But we kept asking. We went deeper. We got more serious with it. We had fun. We had our A-HA moments. Many of them. I even cried when I rediscovered what has been given me that I had not only neglected for so many years, but had managed to completely forget about.
We are hugely grateful that our treasures came up on the surface of our awareness and that now we can use and share them for a good purpose. We are excited to use what has been given us. We pray that you too get excited about what has been given you and USE IT.
