This Week’s Quotation:
I believe that every human being is called to greatness and that life is a thrill if we are in service to our calling, and from my own experience I would recommend this. Do not deny any premonition of your destiny. And do not try to impose a prophesy of the future on your life now. Give it an honored place in your heart, knowing that a true prophesy will bend the world of the manifest to itself over time. Meanwhile, external events do not define our calling. They do not establish the commission we receive from the Invisible. Whatever happens around you, you can honor that calling, that commission. Embrace it. It means everything to you. It is you, being a sun in your world.

This week, Keahi Ewa and I are conducting a 4-day in-person course at Sunrise Ranch, based on my book, Becoming a Sun: Emotional and Spiritual Intelligence for a Happy, Fulfilling Life. We are devoting a half day to each of the seven major chapters of my book, and we just finished covering the chapter of The Fusion of Fulfilling Mission.
Some people seem inclined to fulfill a mission that brings them worldly success. Others seem content to stroll through their life from one thing to another without any great hope or expectation.
Here is what seems important to me—that a person finds what is really important to themselves, no matter what anyone else thinks of it. That way, if they truly manifest it in their life, it will have real meaning to them.
I can’t imagine anything much worse for myself than working a lifetime on something only to find it doesn’t have any real value to me.
One of the joys of this course is that we help people find what has value to them. It is such a pleasure to see the fire in their bellies and the light in their eyes when that happens.
Here is what happened to me yesterday as I witnessed them and egged them on. I felt, more deeply than ever, how much I believe in what I am doing and the significance of it.
I told the participants yesterday that one way they might know they have answered their calling is when they have this thought: I would rather fail at this than succeed at anything else.
That’s true for me. What’s also true is that I am in it to win it. I am on fire about leading people to experience their primal spirituality. I am passionate about bringing Attunement to the world.
What calls to you?
What does it mean to become a sun?
Every human being is already a sun on the inside—a being of intense love and light. The difference is that some people have the vision and courage to become a sun on the outside. This difference is our human destiny.
