“What do you mean it is not about me?”
This is the response we feel when we hear this truth.
“It’s not about me?”
In a me, me, me, myself and I, I-want-it-now culture, we are so often focused on ourselves.
It’s not all about you.
This information, when understood correctly, is very calming.
We all have a purpose, a reason we are here on planet Earth, and that is what it is about.
More about our purpose, than about us.
We are not here to be endlessly interested in our superficial selves and obsess over what we want, what we have and what other people think of us.
A Course in Miracles says it beautifully:
“Everyone is special and no one is special.”
Every individual on the planet has something specific and unique to offer, and this truth negates the ego’s elevation of other people [and ourselves].
We are all from the same source and we all the capacity to bring light and brilliance into the world.
What is more more important is what we add to benefit of humanity.
That business you are starting, it is about customers who’s problems you are solving.
That book you are writing, it is about the people who will implement and spread the ideas in your book.
That tutorial classes are starting, it is about the young leaners you are hoping to empower.
It is about humanity.
You are a remarkable conduit with which your talent flows through you for the benefit of humanity.
It is more about humanity than it is about you.
