This week, our power to be creators in our lives and make our dreams come true is activated, perhaps moreso than ever before.
When a child is born in this world, the first part to leave the womb is the head. It is the head that sees first light. The head represents the “self” of the child. It is this energy of “me” that takes the first breath. It is said the child’s hands are clenched at birth, also indicating our Desire to Receive. From the moment we are born, so much of our energy is about receiving. This is the beautiful design of the Creator. For we were made to be receivers in order to acquire all the love and beneficence the Creator wishes to impart upon us.
As we grow, physically and spiritually, we learn that the Desire to Receive cannot be the only quality we maintain in life. As we mature, we learn that we cannot continue to behave like children forever. Even though adulthood requires of us to change, we relish in this profound opportunity to mature. When we are finally adults, we can create for ourselves incredible and fulfilling lives. We can become inventors, artisans, scholars, entrepreneurs – the masters of our own destinies. Eventually, many of us even become parents ourselves, creating new life to take its first breath in the big wide world.
This is the process of life. We find that the Desire to Receive can only take us so far. It is the Desire to Share and give that paradoxically give us the fulfillment we truly seek, and the life that we wish to live. It is when we are thinking of others and wanting to give to the world that are we able to become the greatest leaders, businesspeople, parents – the best versions of ourselves, that our hearts authentically dream.
