InnerSelf's Daily Inspiration

May 13, 2024

The focus for today is:

I have a role to play in life, and I step up and claim it.

Today's inspiration was written by Marie T. Russell:

Each one of us has a role to play in life... and that includes at home, at work, in public, and in setting the tone for our future, both our personal one and our planetary one. 

Each one of us is a unique piece in the puzzle of life, and just as in any puzzle, if you're missing a piece, things won't work out the way they're supposed to. If we step back because we think we aren't good enough, or what we have to say isn't smart enough, or our beliefs aren't important enough, then we're preventing the puzzle from reaching completion. 

Not one of us is powerless, mostly because as we join with the other puzzle pieces, we start to see the possibility and the strength of the completed puzzle.

Today's inspiration was adapted from the InnerSelf.com article:
      Hey! They're Playing Our Song

Our focus for today: I have a role to play in life, and I step up and claim it.

Radical Regeneration: Sacred Activism and the Renewal of the World
by Andrew Harvey and Carolyn Baker

book cover of Radical Regeneration: Sacred Activism and the Renewal of the World by Andrew Harvey and Carolyn BakerWhat is being made crystal clear is that humanity stands at a monumentally fragile threshold with two stark choices placed before it in a situation of complete uncertainty. Those choices are: 1) To continue to worship a vision of power, totally distanced from sacred reality 2) Or to choose the path of submitting bravely to the alchemy of being transfigured by a global dark night event that shatters all illusions but reveals the greatest imaginable possibility being born out of the greatest imaginable disaster.

If humanity chooses the second path, which is what is being celebrated in this book, then it will have trained itself in the new radical unity necessary to weather even worse crises.
