I had an epiphany listening to The Little Drummer Boy last night.
It dawned on me, that all I need to do to make the most of this life, and do right by my maker, honoring the gift I’ve been given, is to play my best for him.
I’ve felt myself resisting things I want, even things I know I need, like Recognition of Creative Expression. But why?
I couldn’t dare take the chance of being seen as prideful, or conceited.
I know the point of life is growth, so why wouldn’t I aim to grow to my highest potential?
People might see me!
If I’m being really honest, in this MKE, I have been holding back, and I’m NOT okay with that.
This week we talked about impregnating thought with love, and I’ve been searching for where that rings true in my heart. Every time, I think about singing. I think about singing my heart out.
For the fans? No. That doesn’t quite light my fire.
I think about singing with the music and spirit of praise for my creator.
I feel the potential in myself, and I feel that if I did my best, it would be pretty darn amazing.
Is that okay?!
Well, it’s ideal if you think about how…when we let our light shine, we unconsciously give permission for others to do the same.
The world is a better place when we are all striving to reach our potential.
And I strive to make the most out of my life.
I strive to do my best with what I’ve been given.
What I heard in The Little Drummer Boy was an answer to my prayer.
How can I do my best?
We read it in Chapter 12 of the Master Key: “You must first have the knowledge of your power; second, the courage to dare; third, the faith to do.”
I will do my best, as a demonstration of my faith. In the name of Universal Mind and my creator, it is how I will honor this life, this gift I’ve been given.
But can I do it? Will I be able?
As I listened to them sing, “I played my drum for him…I played my best for him…” I heard a resounding YES.
Yes, you can do this. Just take what you’ve been given, and do your best! Play your best for him. Nothing more, nothing less.
And so I shall.
