Now, I’ve written my entire perspective about Destiny a couple of years ago. Here’s Part 2 because, in all honesty, Destiny takes on many shapes and forms. Even when you act like it’s not a part of who you are. You can’t run, you can’t hide. It stays with you.
Here’s the thing about DESTINY. It whispers in your ear and follows you until you’ve quenched its thirst with your surrender.
I know that there have been many things that have happened in my life that have caused me to stop dead in my tracks for some reason. Although I would like to say after some logical assessment, I weighed my options and chose a different road for some profound idea, it wouldn’t be the truth.
The truth would be more that I spent a good many years, no a great many years operating out of space and place of fear in my life. It is astounding the effects that childhood traumas can have on a person’s entire life’s choices and existence. While I won’t bother to re-visit for the umpteenth time all of the things that plagued my innocence as a young child, because this is not THAT teaching moment… what I will say is that until you re-learn your worth and your capacity for the endurance of GREAT things and not just tragic things, you will never be who you were supposed to be in the first place.
That is why I so passionately believe that while my life’s work is a result of all that I have been through, who I am is a result of my ‘RESPONSE‘ to all I’ve been through. And even though all of the obstacles challenged and victoriously overcome, all of the mountains climbed and conquered, all the life experiences yielding peace as its reward, that whisper of my DESTINY calling me is the one sound that I sought to turn a deaf ear to.
I wanted no part of the gifts and callings that were placed upon me and my life. I wanted no responsibility for the enLIGHTenment I received. I begged for a life of ordinary with the willingness to give my extraordinary to anyone and everyone who would oblige. BUT THEN IT HAPPENED…
One day I realized that purpose is the purpose, and Destiny, no matter how much you try to avoid, is something that comes here with you at birth and remains with you until the day you die. While I have learned to temper my rebellious ‘woe is me’ sentiment over the past few years, what I have more so tempered is that egotistical will of mine that wanted no parts of greatness that could never be taken back.
I learned that when you don’t fulfill the purpose you’ve been given when you don’t quench that Destiny’s thirst with your surrender when you don’t realize that your existence here on this earth was never about you and always about what you would do for others, the only thing you are left with is the painstaking remnants of regret in the not knowing “if you only dared to try.”
Don’t expect or live as if Destiny belongs to others. I’m sure if you turn down the volume and listen through the silence, you will undoubtedly recognize the whisper of that Destiny still waiting for you. Now go ahead and surrender.!
