It is time to do the right thing. Actually, it has been time to do so for quite a long while now. Wouldn’t you agree? And my friend, you must ask yourself what is the right thing as it pertains to you, to your life? Perhaps you already know the answer to that question and if so, I would encourage you to begin to do the right thing now, today! No longer can we afford to delay our lives. No longer can we believe that we have the luxury of time nor can we say “When the time is right, I will do this or that.” It is the lack of forward movement in our respective lives that has brought us to the level of mediocrity in which we dwell today. The time to begin to do what is the right and true thing is our life is today, this minute! The time is now! This world is in desperate need of the particular gift that you came into this world with. And in truth, the reason that we often feel restless and discontent and the reason we seek out diversion in so many ways is that we are unfulfilled. And we are unfulfilled due to our neglect of those things which lie within our heart, those things that were meant to be nurtured so that they may grow and come to fruition. Instead we have become a people who try to fill the void they feel with sit-coms and “Must See TV” or with alcohol or drugs. We fill our lives with an endless array of material possessions in an effort to feel accomplished, to feel satisfied without realizing that things will provide only a temporal fulfillment. This is why that after a time, we must go and purchase more things in order to feel sated once again. And allow me to say this as well……There is nothing wrong with material possessions so long as we remain the possessors and do not become possessed by the possessions, if you will.
So once again, if you know what it is that you are to do with this Life you have been given, with the gifts that will fulfill your purpose here and therefore your Destiny, then may I impress upon you the importance of taking action now and of beginning the journey that Life has for you. It is your opportunity and privilege to do so for in doing so, you will impact the many lives that are in need of what you have to share. And the beauty of all this is that when we share with others the gifts that we were meant to share, we are incredibly blessed in return many times over. You see, this is the method by which we obtain personal fulfillment. It has always been and will always be thus. Our Creator set this system in motion when time began. We see it evidenced in the cycle of Nature every day and in every way. Take a long and thoughtful look around you at the life all around you and see if this not indeed the truth.
Now for those who know not what the right thing is to do as it pertains to their lives, let me say this to you. If you will look earnestly within your spirit and your heart, if you will quiet yourself long enough to remember who you were so long ago before the cares of this world swept you up and away……If you will take the time and the effort to do this, you will rediscover your being. You will rediscover and come to know truly perhaps for the first time who you are. The gifts that have been so long-buried will show themselves to you and with just bit of encouragement on your part, these gifts will reawaken and begin their cycle of growth. My friend, if this be you then you are in for a delightful transformation, one that will begin and continue as you step onto the path that Life has chosen for you. It will be arduous at times but well worth it, an exciting adventure that you raise to heights previously unknown to you. For you who wish to discover or rediscover what lies within, I would say to begin this self-introspection today, now and this minute. This world, our world is in need of what you was given to you. Give this thought but do not delay. Begin your journey to fulfillment today so that others may be blessed and that they may bless still others in return.
It is time to do the right thing. It is time to do what is the right thing for our world and for all those who dwell therein. If we choose to do so, our world can be blessed and be changed in dramatic fashion. And in doing what is right and what is true within, we ourselves cannot help but to be abundantly blessed in return. It is the way of it and cannot be otherwise. It is time to do the right thing. Let us do so today. Let us begin now.
I wish to thank you for taking the time to take in these words. Good words strung together are as like unto a good meal. I hope that the words here this evening have provided nourishment of a sort for your mind and spirit. Please do consider what you have read and act upon it for it is more than a bit true. And if I may, truth in action is what we need. It is what our world requires so it may know healing. Good night. Take care with yourselves.
