May 12, 2010 - God's Gifts


Earlier this evening I finished a book that the doctor has encouraged me to read for, oh....about a year now. The primary reason it took me so long to read this book is because I read the book 10 years ago and thought it was a waste of time. I could not relate to any part of it.

Since I continue on this journey of personal growth and lifestyle changes I decided to humor the man and read the book. This time, I learned something.

God bestows a set of gifts on only a select few.

The ability to:
  • Taste the depths of hell without external catalysts.
  • See the rainbow in each drop of rain.
  • Experience deep soul-stretching emotional pain.
  • Feel the breeze on a windless day.
  • Swim upstream.
  • View imaginative movies in the mind's eye.
  • Dance to the music when none can be heard.
  • Live to learn.
  • Learn to live.
  • Fight the status quo.
  • Find the humor in the inane.
  • Process thoughts a zillion times faster than any man-made computer.
  • Pity those that do not understand.
  • Appreciate that the gifts are a blessing, not a curse.

Fortunately, society does not understand these gifts or it would try harder to take them away.

Til Next Week,
