Whatever our talents, they are to be appreciated, developed, and employed.
As children, we have been taught to both denigrate our own talents, “oh, really, but I’m lousy at that,” and to inflate them “i’m the best at that,” particularly when we’ve not applied any discipline to what may or may not be a skill.
Skills, talents, and gifts are too often ill-utilized, either because we’ve not done the work to develop them or because we hesitate to employ them, simply dismissing their value.
Time to take a good look in the mirror and tot up those gifts. If there were ever a time the world needs our gifts to be used for Peace and the well-being of everyone and the Earth we live on… it is now. We will live in Peace only by making it.
We will make Peace with our gifts.
