You Are God's Best Idea! Daily Epigram for: January 16, 2012
"The fact that God bothered enough in the first pace, is all you
need to know about your necessity."-Douglas Holzmeier
What good are you?
I swear I heard that a thousand times as a kid. And it was not a “good” sign when it was asked - because it was really more of a statement than a question. I thought we could have some fun breaking this simple question into metaphysical parts. Want to give it a go?
“WHAT – good are you?” Emphasizing the first word in this question changes the context completely. All of a sudden it becomes a question of curiosity – almost anticipation! Indeed – WHAT – or WHICH “good” do you represent? (Inquiring minds want to know) You see – it is All good because it is All God and God – is self-existent Good.
WHAT – good are you - is something we are all trying to figure out when we suggest we are struggling to find our purpose. As I have written – YOU ARE the PURPOSE. The purpose is Love. Now – we get to bottle and serve up our particular brand of Love. (You only go around once in life so grab all the Douglas you can get/Not too Doug – Not too Holzmeier/ It’s Douglas Time!) But not everyone is buying. Which is most likely their problem but in fairness – it could be your problem. Are you sharing your Love unconditionally - or do people have to chase it down with salt and lime in order to avoid bitter mug (Doug) face?
The Good you are to the world can take many shapes and forms as you grow and evolve your unique expressions of inner inherent divinity. The closer these expressions are to the Truth of your eternal Being– the Lighter and Fulfilling they will be. You are “What” is good – and your WHAT (Love) is good. The purer your wellspring – the more people will desire to drink from it. This is where we can meditate and go within and ask for clarity of Mind and Soul.
“What GOOD – are you?” This is closer to the regular use of this insensitive phrase. Someone is essentially saying you are not good for much. This is NOT true at all! You are the same Good as everyone else – how much of this Good you make known could be at the heart of the question. Don’t save your Good/Love; share your Love/Good. If you insist on guarding your reservoir – your well will grow stagnant instead of helping raise someone’s self-esteem.
“What good ARE – you?” You BE so you IS – and all that is – is Good. There really is no antonym to the word - are. Regardless of where you are on your path to enlightenment – you’ve got to know that you are not only good for SOME-thing – you are the SUM-THING. You are the sum of All Good. Try living up to that – because you ARE that!
“What good are – YOU?” You are Divine and Important – Needed and Necessary – Loved and the Beloved: You Are God’s Best Idea! (That’s Who!)
A better question may be: Do you LOVE what you are? Do you love WHAT you are? Do you love what YOU are? Do you love what you ARE? Do you love THAT you are? If you have lived under the illusion that you were good for nothing because people kept asking what you were good for – then you may have had some doubts. Doubt is the hesitation that disheartens the Angels. You have an Angel! You have a Spirit Guide. You are not alone. You have the Essence of the Creator of the Universe as close as your Consciousness.
What are you good FOR? Now this IS a powerful question. You are good for all those whom you meet and all whom meet them and all whom meet them and the many you’ll never meet or know but whom you will have positively LOVED when you began sharing your Good – your Love – freely with others - oh so long ago. (I know you have!)
Today’s Life Coaching Lesson is -You are Good For Love – and that is Good Enough – because you are Enough. Yes – what almost everyone wants to know is: Am I Good Enough? You are the Good that Is. You are the Love that Is. Yes – You Are This and That Good!
You are the Enough.
