There obviously is a reason why you and I have been created as human beings. Else, we could have been created as the swine that spreads the flu. Why be created as the human who gets that dreaded flu? So, stop cribbing. Instead, celebrate being human.
The problem with most of humankind is that we lament being human. We say, justifying our limitations and frailties, 'After all, I am human'.
When we look at our creation from that perspective, we miss seeing the limitless power and potential within us. We are so overwhelmed by stories from history that we fail to see our true self.
Krishna was born, the prison gates opened and the serpent sheltered the baby as the father crossed the overflowing river in pouring rain. When Jesus was born, the three Kings were guided by a star in the sky. When Nanak was born, those visiting the child found a halo around the baby's head. But who recorded what they saw when you and I were born? Who tells the stories of our birth? Therein lies the reason as to why we don't recognize who we are and what we are truly capable of.
Know that if Mother Teresa's life had a Purpose, if Swami Vivekananda's life had a Purpose, if the Prophet's Life had a Purpose, so do our lives__yours and mine.
Swami Sathya Sai Baba says it beautifully,"The difference between you and me is that I know that I am God. And you don't or you refuse to accept that you are God!".
We will start living intelligently when we know that we have been created as humans with a specific Purpose. We are 'avatars' too....or 'messiahs', if you like.
Being human is to know that the Godlight is within you. This life is not about searching for it outside you, but to find it exists in you. When you find the God within, your life's Purpose will manifest itself and you will 'awaken' to a lifetime of Loving, Serving and Living! - AVIS Motivational Speaker Imagequity.
