[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Are you alone in your castle of glory?

Live a whole life .Work can be an important part of our lives, but we
should never let it be how we define ourselves. Putting all your energy and
resources into your work may feed your ego, but if you're relationships are
falling apart, your health neglected and your spiritual life ignored, you
could end up sitting alone in your castle of glory.

That jewellery you like to make

The painting you sit with for hours

The race you like to run

The tennis you like to play

The thing that you will do for free, that thing, that is why

Why are you here?

To create

To live a life that contributes to the joy that is inside of you

Your joy

Because when you do what brings you joy, you serve the world. You
contribute to the creation of the world's joy, you contribute to the light

Your gifts are the gateway to your greatness

And all of us matter, We live from a place of littleness. Do not be content
with littleness

Why am I really here?

Why are you here?

To serve, To create, to use your own personal god given power

You have the right to be powerful and nobody gets the right to tell you how
to do it but you. It starts with believing in those gifts

You have the right to be bold and bodacious and nobody cant tell you nuthin!

What makes you come alive?

And here's the thing, you may never get an award, the Nobel Peace prize or
invited to the diplomatic center but you will be at peace, a place of joy.
You are changing lives around you

You are changing the world in your own way

Why am I here?

To share these lessons with you

Thank you for being part of the journey

Big big love and blessings on your own journey
