What is mine to do to make a better world? That is a question I have asked every day for the past 10 years, or so.
For the first 27 years of my life I was a taker and I used and abused everyone who crossed my path and I ended up sleeping on park benches as a violent sub human.
Forty-five years ago, I had a major spiritual experience that changed my life forever. I made a commitment that every day I had left on the earth, I would do what I could to give back a little of what I took.
About 10 years ago I added to the giving back and began asking what is mine to do. I have lived many years past what I thought possible and I know I am still here to give all of me – whatever that is – to make a better world.
About one year ago, I was invited by my spiritual community to direct the youth services and I am now a Sunday school teacher. I start crying as I type this because it is a joy beyond anything I have ever known. I have found my peace.
The future is now in the hearts of our children. I am teaching principles of Truth to the little ones who are tomorrows leaders. Long after I am gone, I hope they remember the peace and joy of living in truth.
For me, there is no greater feeling than hearing a 3 or 4 year old tell me that God is love, joy and peace and that God loves EVERY one the same.
I am blessed to have a ton of joy and love in my life for the past 45 years but I do not recall ever experiencing this level of joy. I no longer feel like something is missing in my life. It is my honor and privilege to serve humanity through the hearts and minds of our future – the children.
Thank you, God for my life and the blessings I have received. I am so overpaid.
