Our entire lifetime is a journey to self worth, self awareness, and soul growth. We must endeavor to acquire a genuine understanding of our soul and spirit. Everything we experience, whether good or bad serves that very purpose. Everything goes back to the one simple principle. God has given us a talent. This is our gift. What we do with this talent is our gift back to God. My friends, it really is that simple. No matter what challenges we face, at the core of the issues, no matter what they be, we must take ownership of ourselves and purpose; our light of spirit. Then we must shine that light wherever we go.
