Wondrous and Worthy

“But every man is more than just himself; he also represents the unique, the very special and always significant and remarkable point at which the world’s phenomena intersect, only once in this way and never again. That is why every man, as long as he lives and fulfills the will of nature, is wondrous, and worthy of consideration.” – Hermann Hesse, Demian

What does it take to fulfill the will of your inner nature?

To begin with, you must be able to hear it. You must be sufficiently still, at peace in and with yourself, exactly where and as you now are. This state comes as you genuinely let go of self-concern, unconditionally relinquish worries and fears about the future and totally forgive any injustices you’ve suffered in the past. The seas of your heart must first be calmed from within.

From there you can begin to live how you were designed to live. From there, your life will be wondrous and worthy of consideration.

    We are a unique and singular focus of life, as much as we let our true selves be seen in the world, The trick in doing that is that you can’t wait for the perfect configuration of circumstances to let that happen. If you are waiting for that you will be waiting for a long time. You have to begin where you are, and in each moment, let who you truly are be shown in that moment, whether the circumstance is perfect or not.

    Those are wise and worthy words! Releasing self concern allows the truth of who we are to reveal itself. Time to be still and “let”,

    Beautiful post Gregg. When the seas of my heart are calm, I do feel I’m here to do something different from the status quo, large and significant. When the self concerns, worries and fears take hold, there is just the opposite – smallness and insignificance. Your daily posts encourage refinement in every way and the phrase “doers of the word” often comes to mind these days.

    Thank you for outlining what it takes to know the worthiness of ourselves. As we do we can wondrously give it to those in our world so fulfilling our lives.

    What you’re describing is the ability to live fully in the present. It requires the use of the faculties we have that makes the connection between the inner and the outer; the heart and mind. It seems rather absurd, as it should be so natural, but at first it may require vigilance, practice and even a type of determination to live by the will of your inner nature; but as we begin to hear and experience that abiding peace, it becomes our priority.

    The mysteries of life are not really mysteries-they are in plain sight and hearing if we have the space in our hearts and minds to perceive them.
