Being Human

The following is an excerpt from Marlo Morgan’s book on aboriginal wisdom, lessons and values to being human. It is called “Messages From Down Under.”

The following message applies to all souls everywhere. It has been appropriate for every period of time from the caveman to the present. The task is not worldly success, it is spiritually orientated.

Lesson 1

“You should express your individual creativity. Each individual sees things through his own set of circumstances and so has a unique expression to offer the world. Creativity includes the arts, but is not limited to that, nor is painting, composing or writing in any way more significant that the creative measures taken to comfort someone in distress, to bring order to conflict or chaos or to tell a child a story. We can be expressive in the way we comb our hair, select dark clothing or arrange our residence, plant a garden, make a craft or even mend something. The key seems to be let your actions express you and work to make everything you express something you are proud of.”

I have been watching The Voice this week and the singers/musicians that have not tried to be someone else, stayed true to their vision, and let their uniqueness stand out, always had someone turn around to acknowledge them.

“To thine own self be true.”
