Standing on the Edge - Aptitude
Doing what we're good at never challenges us or encourages new growth. The world rejoices in the beauty of artwork aptly done and music deftly orchestrated. God bestows His gifts on us and we call it "talent," or aptitude. We attempt to explain in common sense terminology that we inherited certain qualities from our ascendants, all the while setting aside the notion that our abilities are gifts from the Infinite. Jesus once said "If you love those who love you, what reward have you?" Taking this concept further, let's ponder, if you do only what you're already good at, what have you accomplished? What you're good at comes easy, it’s yesterday’s news. Stand on the edge of your aptitude and dare to try something you've never done before. The echo of your new voice may sing back to you if you shout out your willingness to attempt the unknown.
Standing on the Edge
New-thought philosophy purposefully
exploring life's spiritual inter-relationships,
sprinkled with a little history and words of wisdom.
Who are you - accomplishment
Who are you when you finally achieve a major goal you set for yourself?
Are you saddened at the loss of striving to achieve?
Do you allow yourself to revel in the joy of accomplishment?
