How the world works. We thought that would be a catchy title, and those of you who understand this message will know you have done so because you will feel a new determination to live your lives fully.
Some time ago, we gave you a message entitled, “How to Bake a Cake.” Some understood it, but many, including Roger, did not embody its intended meaning. You came to believe that your “ingredient,” or what you have to offer to the recipe of the world may not be as valuable as another, and in some cases, not needed. Nothing could be further from the truth.
This analogy will help most. When you were a teenager, you felt this rebellious streak that told you you possessed incredible knowledge and wisdom, and your parents just didn’t understand that. But then you went to school, and in this formal setting, you were taught that maybe you didn’t know everything. So slowly but surely, you began cutting off that natural creative spark you held.
Any unhappiness, sadness, or difficulties you experience now are meant to alert you to the fact that the only way you will be happy and fulfilled now is to light that spark. That’s all.
