Divinity: What does that word mean to you? I don’t believe it means the same thing for any two people, so define it as you will.
For one day however I would like you to concentrate on the miracle that is YOU. The fact that you exist at all is an amazing fact. All the things, events, people, and places, that had to intersect before you in order to combine the perfect molecular stew that is YOU is a pretty phenomenal event if you ask me.
You see the world in only one way—your way. We cross paths with people we agree with, disagree with, understand, and don’t understand, but there is no one else who can look through your eyes and perceives the world the way you do. That is a miracle to me.
I choose to view each of us as a tiny spark of the Divine. We are all part of this large mass of little sparks of light each composed of our own very special pieces of Divinity. Some of us are gifted speakers, artists, healers, writers, conversationalist, protectors, nurturers, thinkers, problems solvers, care givers, listeners, dancers, smilers, organizers, huggers, and some are excellent laughers. Have you ever been around a person whose laughter fills you up? I have and it comforts me.
Since this list of our gifts is infinite, and since we each can’t be all of these things in one healthy body without being completely insane not knowing which way to go with our life, I believe we each bring our own set of sprinklings from the infinite list. It is by being in the presence of others with different sprinklings that we gain balance and joy. When I’m in need of support I seek my friends with the gifts of encouragement, insight, and empathy. At crowded gatherings I follow around the conversationalist like a shadow. When others need clarity they seek my logic, organization, and creativity. We balance each other out and fill in the gaps.
What are your special sprinkles? Before you begin your day try to think of at least five. If you have trouble coming up with five, dig deeper—or call me. I bet I can listen to you for ten minutes and know what makes you awesome!! Maybe it's your smile, your glowing eyes, your patience, your ability to doodle and talk on the phone simultaneously, or even the crow’s feet that demonstrate a life time of smiling, or maybe it’s your quiet demeanor that calms those around you, or your ability to be the life of the party and tell a great joke. You have sprinkles I’m sure—simply because of the fact that you are here—period.
Today spread your Divine Pieces around. I like to ask myself this question, “When I come in contact with you, what missing pieces of divinity are we getting to share with each other today?”
