There is a beautiful full moon up high in the sky. It’s up there right now lighting up the landscape like a spotlight.
A few nights ago I’m pretty sure you’ve seen the magical spectacle of lunar halo. It was the very first time I saw something like that. I spent a huge amount of time just staring up at the sky. Wish I was able to take a snapshot for myself.
Anyways, the moon has been a great source of inspiration to countless individuals and has given hope to millions throughout the history of the world. It is more than a celestial body in the sky. Much much more. The moon represents our dreams, our aspirations, but most importantly it represents our endless human potential.When we look at the full moon we are astonished at its beauty. Only once a month does it reach it’s full potential and thoroughly light up the sky, but when it does the world truly glows.
We are attracted to the moon because when we look at it we know anything is possible. We can get our dream job. We can do anything we want. For a moment we have hope. You see, the potential in each and everyone of us is endless. What we choose to do with our potential is ultimately up to us. We are naturally calibrated to glow and to shine, yet our fears and our worries hinder our ability to radiate the beams of our soul.
We don’t have to live each day showing only a glimpse of our true potential. We can consciously choose to let the full moon that lay dormant inside of us, shine and light up the world just as the moon in the sky does.
All we have to do is live.
I realize that truly living is something that can be very difficult to do, after all there are many reasons we are unhappy. And by no means am I perfect. I am not perfect, nor will I ever be. But I have a relentless desire to live to the best I am capable of. That relentlessness enables me to move closer to my goal of living a truly conscious life each and everyday.
It’s very easy to get caught up in all the things that are wrong with this world, yet it is our responsibility to represent hope. The only way we can truly represent hope is by living to our fullest potential. Since the pursuit of happiness is what we are aiming for we must live to our fullest potential. We must give. We must love. We must learn. We must glow. That is our true calling.
Yes we will make mistakes. Yes there will be some bumps in our path to happiness. Yes there will be times in which we want to give up. But we must persevere and remember that our purpose in living is larger than ourselves. Our purpose in living is to shine and to grow. Unleash your full moon potential and light up our world with your love and your kindness.
We can never have too many full moons.
Live and glow today.
