Blank business card

We are all made from stars. We are mainly water, carbon, and a few other elements. But we are mysteriously unique from one another. Some of us are more creative, some more logical. Some of us are better at expressing words and concepts, others are better at numbers. Although we contain the same substance, it is unarguable that we are also expressly different.

When I was a child I was often asked what I was going to be when I grew up. Most adults seemed to demand a single answer, such as a doctor or lawyer. Fortunately, I discovered that I could be whoever I desired whenever I desired.

I am a jeweler by trade. It is the diamond business that has been my livelihood since I was twenty-two years old. I realized, however, that all of us can be anything we can imagine.

When I behold a large gem, I am a diamond merchant.
When I strum the guitar, I am a musician.
When I pour aromatic beans, I am a coffee maker.
When I perform a trick, I am a magician.
When I gaze at a star, I am a time traveler.
When I pause to listen, I am a father.
When I admire a sunset, I am the sunset.

So, it is not the ingredients of our makeup that defines us, but the combination of those ingredients that defines our essence. It is awesome that we can be philosophers, scientists, and great teachers. We can be anything we want, whenever we want.

Thought for the day: Ask yourself, “Who am I?” If you could print a single title on your business card, what would it say? How many different business cards would you need? I hope many.

The Anniversary Ring

“You love birds can sit here with me if you want,” the elderly man said to the young couple desperately looking for a vacant breakfast table. “I’ll be leaving soon, and it looks like these are the last empty chairs in the house.” The Garden Terrace was a romantic spot that peered across the Pacific […]

To whom are we praying?

Less than a few hours of oxygen remain on the small submersible that imprisons five passengers in the freezing North Atlantic. Millions of people are praying. Millions of people also believe in the power of prayer.  Surely this concentration of thought will lean toward a positive result. Surely with our focused intention our prayers will […]
